Falling down drunk loses.
William Joy had drunk 13 vodkas and four pints when he fell off the stool in the Copper Room bar in Cookstown, Co Tyrone.
In a hearing last year, the court was told the accident in 1989 left Joy, 37, a virtual paraplegic.
But the High Court in Belfast yesterday rejected Joy's claim the landlord was negligent. They ruled the stool was only unsafe because of Joy's drunkenness.
