The appellants in this personal injury suit challenge summary judgment in favor of appellee, Schlumberger Technology Corp. The appellants were hit by an intoxicated driver who had been attending a fishing trip organized by Schlumberger. The evidence raises an issue of material fact as to whether Schlumberger allowed a "party atmosphere" to prevail during the fishing trip, whether the driver became intoxicated while on the boat, and whether Schlumberger operated a "floating dram shop" that resulted in the driver's intoxication. The trial court's judgment is reversed and remanded. Corpus Christi Court of Appeals, No. 13-11-00392-CV, 11-08-2012.
