    Exclamation Am I Liable for the Damages Caused By Someone Else

    My question involves defamation in the state of: Alabama

    I brought a Hookah to a friends party at his request. someone knocked the hookah over 2 times, damaging the hookah, and burning 3 holes in the carpet. they cut the carpet out and now have 3 holes in their carpet. My "friend" called me today and said he wanted payment, I have 5$ to my name and could not possibly. im afraid his roommates will try to sew if they lose their deposit, do they have grounds? am I liable for the damage someone else caused with my hookah?

    You didn't knock it over. I do not see that you have any liability in the matter.

    All they have to do is find the same carpeting in a store and buy a small piece. Then cut it to match and glue, nail, staple it in place.

    Probably not the thing to bring to a party with drunken uncoordinated morons.

    PS: Why did you post in this forum?

    I'm not seeing how your friend thinks you're responsible.

    He should be talking to the people who knocked it over.
