Social host liability is created by a statute or case law that imposes liability on social hosts as a result of their serving alcohol to adults or minors. Persons subject to social-host liability in criminal and civil actions are frequently those that provided alcohol to the obviously intoxicated or to minors who subsequently are involved in vehicle crashes or other activities causing death or injury to third parties, but these are not necessary conditions. A social host is most often a private individual who serves alcohol in a non-commercial setting.
