The lawsuit, filed Oct. 8 by Miami attorney Mark Feinstein, alleges Halftime served Stiller alcohol in the hours before his July 1 motorcycle crash, even though the bartenders knew he was not 21.
After spending weeks in a coma at Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Stiller is living now at a rehabilitation hospital in Jacksonville. His attorney said his medical expenses currently exceed half a million dollars.
Stiller was 19 years old this summer when he wrecked his motorcycle at the intersection of Cassadaga Road and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Beltway. He had been on his way home to Cassadaga around 2 a.m., after spending time with friends in DeLand.
When he didn’t show up at home, his friends searched for him, but couldn’t see him or his motorcycle lying off the side of the road at the intersection. He was discovered by a bicyclist about three hours after the crash.
His mom, Katie Stiller, said her son fractured almost every bone in his face, and had trauma to his brain, broken ribs, punctured lungs, a lacerated liver, and ant bites from lying, unconscious, in the grass.
The lawsuit asks for damages exceeding $15,000, the statutory threshold for Circuit Court.
