Interesting New Case?



To my friends at the DBR, Riptide, Herald or anywhere else for that matter, please go to 73 West Flagler and pull this one for me -- gotta be pure gold (rush):

Mark S. Gold
v.
Turntable Entertainment and Production Co. dba Gold Rush
4/22/2011 11-12307CA13
Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act. The defendant, a strip club, served the plaintiff, a lawyer, so much alcohol that he became "temporarily unconscious, and further to the extent that he had a complete loss of judgment, rational thought, or the ability to enter into lawful contracts or agreements." Then the defendant charged his credit card $18,930 for "goods and services."

  6. Sounds like a fun night to me. I've lost more in Vegas, and didn't even get a lap dance.

  7. Thanks, but remember judge not lest ye be fooled again (or something like that).

    I mean who of us hasn't gone out, had a good time, and then became "temporarily unconscious, and further to the extent that he had a complete loss of judgment, rational thought, or the ability to enter into lawful contracts or agreements."

    I personally have had that reaction at Sawgrass Mills and don't even ask about Ikea on a Saturday.

  9. Rule #1- leave the black Amex at home when going to a strip club.

    BTW- did he drive home ( a big no no) or call a cab?

  10. can one charge the "services" at a gentleman's club (I assume that's a lap dance?) to a credit card? what type of booze do you order to rack up $16K? this is quite something.

  11. At $18,930 one can only imagine the stains...

  12. I've had nights that I regret. And I've blown more than 18K in a day. But I am certain I've never blown 18K on a night that I regret.

  14. Why is it that every lawyer who puts "ultra vires" in a pleading, and probably knows what it means, is in trouble in one way or another? Just askin re the Gleason post.

  15. Those hairless and nubile Ruskie chicas must have been grinding on his salami to the point that he lost his ability to function.

    Hope all the grinders, er dancers, were legitimately over the age of 18.
