It's a question of relation-back. Complex questions of fact and law. If the individuals knew of the lawsuit and knew that they were responsible for the dram shop violation, there's a chance that they can be added and have a difficult time with respect to coverage, indemnity and the like. You can call me at 212-278-1471 to make an appointment to meet and discuss. No up front charge for the meeting.
