Needs some help understanding an indemnity clause. The first on is the one I submitted to them. The second is what they sent back. As a bar
, wouldn't an indemnity clause for them be null and void? They could be held responsible for the outcome, say if someone left their bar inebriated and were to cause an accident. I am not sure why they would need protection.
