Employee on the road not acting within scope of employment, issue of fact on punitives

In Muri v. Killeen, Judge Wilson ruled, among other things, that an employee was not acting within the scope of his employment for the co-defendant employer, when he was in an automobile accident driving after a dinner party related to his work, and also denied the individual defendant's motion for summary judgment on punitive damages, concluding there was enough evidence to create a jury issue under the Booth case.
