One Family Upset Over Decision
The Three Legged Monkey on Hawkins near Montana in East El Paso has been allowed to renew their liquor license.
The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission says they have settled their case with the bar, but they will have to operate under certain restrictions.
Those details are still being sorted out by the TABC, and a final decision is expected by the end of the month.
Family members of Lourdes Lopez are upset over this decision.
They say they are partially to blame for her death.
As we reported, Lopez died last June when she slammed head on into another vehicle in Horizon City.
She died at the scene.
Authorities say she had just returned from the Three Legged Monkey.
Her BAC (blood alcohol level) was at .23, close to three times the legal limit.
Her family says bartenders should have stopped serving her alcohol when they noticed she was drunk.
