Court of Appeals affirms summary disposition against man beaten in bar

Dennis Cole was beaten in a Wayne County bar.  He attempted to sue the owner, arguing that the operator and the other assailants were "agents" for whom the owner should owe responsibility.  The Court rejected his claim, holding that the bar operator was an "independent contractor" and therefore the owner owed no duty to protect his victims.
