The purpose of this law is to discourage providers of alcoholic beverages from serving too much booze to obviously intoxicated people who inflict serious injury on themselves or others. Drunk driving is often at issue in a Dram Shop case.
In a Texas Dram Shop Act lawsuit:
The defendant may hold a TABC license or may not hold a TABC license. But this comes up when a proper defendant sold or served an alcoholic beverage to an adult recipient when it was obvious the recipient was intoxicated.
