The lawsuit, filed this week in Fulton State Court, blames Door 44 for giving Scott several alcoholic drinks and then letting her leave the property in her car.
The suit said Door 44 is liable "for damages equal to the full value of Jordan Griner's life." The suit said Jordan Griner might have lived another 50 years; his parents are asking for $1 million plus legal, medical and burial expenses.
Door44 did not respond to message left Tuesday afternoon on voicemail seeking comment.
Autumn and Toni Griner said in the suit the Door 44 management was responsible for Jordan Griner's death because they continued to serve Scott, then 26, even though she was noticeably drunk. They knew "or should have known" Scott would be driving her Ford Mustang convertible to the condominium complex on Lenox Road in Buckhead where she lived, the suit said.
Jordan Griner, a University of Georgia graduate from Augusta, had worked in the governor's constituents office for almost a year and had just learned he won a six-month fellowship at the Capitol.
He was the designated driver for other interns celebrating the the end of a six-month government fellowships and Griner's new fellowship. He had just dropped off three friends and was driving home to the Atlantic Station apartment where he was living when Scott's car slammed into his.
The lawsuit said Jordan Griner was conscious during the 30 minutes it took fire fighters to extricate him from his car and was in "excruciating pain." He died at Grady Memorial Hospital of a ruptured heart.
