Oregon bar failed to protect female customers from drugged drinks, sexual assault, $5M suit says

Two women who say they were sexually assaulted after someone slipped drugs in their drinks at a popular Eugene bar have filed a $5 million lawsuit against the bar’s former ownership -- claiming it knew the bar had an ongoing problem but failed to protect them.

The lawsuit says an employee at Taylor’s Bar & Grill -- situated next to the University of Oregon campus -- might have been working together with customers to doctor women’s drinks, take the incapacitated women off premises and rape or otherwise sexually attack them, according to the lawsuit filed Thursday.

At the time, police had investigated the possibility of a bartender working in concert with customers, the suit says. No charges, however, appear to have been filed against any employees.

On Jan. 19, 2017, the two women who filed this week’s lawsuit say they went to Taylor’s Bar to spend the evening with friends, and soon became disoriented after consuming drinks that had been tainted. A male stranger escorted the women out of the bar -- even though a friend of the women told bar employees that the man shouldn’t be taking the women and that the friend had arranged to take them home, the suit states.

1. if an rmployee is involved, that is one thing, but

always remember not to leave your drink unattended if you are not absolutely sure of everyone in the room.
