11th Circuit Tip To Aspiring Litigants -- Don't Get Assaulted At A Strip Club


There are few certainties in life, but one universal rule seems constant -- if you refuse to leave a strip club at closing time, you will in fact get the s$#t beat out of you.

The 11th Circuit upholds the validity of this maxim in an unpublished opinion affirming Judge Marra's summary judgment in a case involving the company Seductions LLC, which appears to be doing business as Hotties Gentlemen Club/Goldfellas:
Mauricio Arana was injured in 2006 when Seductions employees allegedly beat and threw him out of the company’s nightclub after he refused to leave at closing time. The Aranas subsequently sued Seductions in state court to recover damages for Mauricio’s injuries, medical expenses alleged to exceed $1 million, and loss of consortium. The Aranas’ complaint alleged that Seductions had negligently hired, retained, trained, and supervised the employees responsible for the attack.
The coverage issue centered on whether the claim sounded in negligence or arose out of an assault and battery, which was limited to $25,000 under the terms of the policy.

Guess which way the 11th came down?

  1. He probably just wanted to make sure the girls got home safe.

  2. One of the girls assured him that 1) she is only working her way through school to become a dental hygienist; 2) that he is "cute;" and 3) that they would get together for breakfast after her shift

    If you have ever believed any of these lines, for your own good, please refrain from going to strip clubs.

    This has been a public service announcement.

  3. Also, this is the first time she's ever done anything like this.

  4. That's right "honest lawyer." Said stripper is only *** years old (half real age plus seven, never under 18), and she just started stripping between 1 and 6 months ago.

  6. She is only working her way through school? Hey 2:18 that is always the case. Never met a stripper who was in it only for shaking and jiggling.

  7. 2:18 I once was lucky enough to have an "after shift" breakfast at Denny's up the street from Lipsticks (RIP) with a Colombian stripper named Linda. She was a savage who ate her eggs without utensils. She was dust as soon as the check came.

  8. I think guests going to strip clubs must go home before closing time to avoid conflict. Have fun and go home straight.

  9. I don't think you'd see that at a male strip club although you never know.
