When a person holds a party at a facility or home, he or she may assume social host liability. In some states, it's the law that the person holding the party can be held liable for any alcohol-related injuries that occur if the host provides alcohol to minors, but that can sometimes extend to adults at the home as well. The host can be held liable for injuries or deaths caused by the minor being served alcohol, and in some cases, they may face liability claims for adults who cause drunk driving accidents.
