US man loses lawsuit against club over USD 28k bar tab in 1 night
A man, claiming that he was fraudulently billed at the West Side jiggle joint in 2011, has been tossed out by the Manhattan Supreme Court Justice.
The Hustler Club on 12th Ave. charged William Ilg over 28,000 dollars on his bar tab for one night, the New York Daily News reported.
Ilg's lawsuit - claiming that he was fraudulently billed at the joint in 2011 - is a bust, too.
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Manuel Mendez tossed out the suit, in which Ilg alleged that he was served too many drinks, leaving him "no longer capable of conducting financial transactions."
When Ilg discovered 28,109.60 dollars in credit card charges for a night of pleasure he couldn't even remember, he demanded a full refund.
"There is no duty upon (Hustler Club) to protect plaintiff from the results of his (voluntary) intoxication," Mendez wrote in a recent decision.
The judge also dismissed another legal action Ilg filed this year claiming the club lacked the proper liquor license.
In that motion, Ilg added the allegation that he was plied with cocaine as well as booze on the night he was soaked, according to court papers.
