  • If I don't remember it didn't happen.

    Unless the club wants to show me a video of me up and moving during my blackout, then I'm guessing they drugged me and charged up my credit card.

    stripper thread!
  • So what they're saying is that despite having consumed sufficient alcohol to severely impair his judgement, he's still legally considered responsible for his own actions.

    I wonder if that legal principle could carry over to any other aspects of the law.
  • Hahahaha, that's exactly the kind of thing I imagine is going on at Larry Flynt's Hustler Club every time I drive past it.

    It does. You have impaired judgement, however if you get behind the wheel you cant use that impairment as a mitigating circumstance

  • There's no guarantee that the transactions he was making, whilst absolutely paralytic, were done in good faith. They could bring him beers, ask for his credit card, he thinks "pfft, $10-$20 tops", but he gets back in the morning he sees that it was $500 a drink, and they ran it through twice, or maybe even 3 times for the one drink, whilst no where in the bar does it say beers are $500.

    If a dance is $300 there's no way he had nearly 100 of them. He was just ripped off because they saw he was drunk so could take advantage and ramp up the prices.

    Strip bars are very dangerous places to lose control whilst drunk.

    Well, considering every strip club in the world is pretty much a clip joint, especially the bigger ones, it probably only applies to these types of cases where "services" are provided.
  • He said he had a huge gap in his memory and woke up the next day in Delaware after being driven home by a club employee

    He got done over so hard that the employees decide to drive you home.... damn....

  • I've been waiting for this to happen. A contract is not legally enforceable if the signatory is drunk.
  • Many moons ago I had a brief gig as a B girl in a strip club in the Quarter. I was broke but walked out the second night I was there after learning what the place was all about.
    Get 'em in, get a credit card, blah blah.

    Shame is a big factor in these negotiations. Many people will pay to get it to go away.

    Lucy v. Zehmer says your statement is naive and incorrect and that you need to ask for your law school tuition back. Try telling them you were drunk when you enrolled.
  • Theaetetus: Lucy v. Zehmer


    "is immaterial except when an unreasonable meaning which he attaches to his manifestations is known to the other party."

    They drove the drunk guy home. They must have known this manifestation.

    And asshat, I'm not in Law School nor have I ever made that claim.

    ...and would a credit card payment count as a 'contract'? I think it should be payment under false pretences, or something, because they used the fact he was drunk to overcharge, probably repeatedly, for something he may not even have wanted.

    Legally speaking - If you are drunk and can prove it there are situations where you cannot be held liable or give true consent.

    Why don't we go out drinking -just you and me. I'll ply you with liquor, women, cocaine whatever you want. The next day you will have signed a contract that you don't remember signing and I'll hold you up to it.

    Sounds fair? I wonder what the judge will do.
  • Ah, the old "I was too drunk to know that I was drunk" defense.
    Was outlawed in North Carolina, because too many drunk drivers got off using it.
  • At 28,000, yes and he probably has a very strong case.
  • Reads Article

    Fantastic. I prefer young, hot boys as long as I don't have to deal with their drama. Cocaine? Nah.
    Methinks you don't have a real good law savvy. The Judge will do whatever he is bribed to do, and if he is not corrupt he will abide the law which will cancel drunken/impaired contracts.
  • They should have made him settle up at five thousand dollar intervals or something, if it's legitimate.

    It could easily be worse than that. They may have given him rapenol or whatever it's called. He's the second guy this has happened to.

    In Minnesota, at least, serving alcohol to a a person who's visibly drunk is a crime. At the very least, the bar should lose its liquor license.
  • FTA: However, the New Yorker's case was thrown out by a judge and adding to what must have already been a terrible hangover, he will now have to pay the credit card bill of $28,109.60.

    Not to mention his "attorney's" fees.

  • Subby has obviously not heard of this scam.

    1. Provide potential "mark" with lap dances, women and promises of "happy endings".
    2. Slip drug into drink and ring up CC with things he didn't purchase when he passes out.
    3. Leave him back at the hotel.
    4. Profit.

    I bet I can make the cost of doing business less than profitable for you...

    /willing to try
  • Was "Ilg" what he said when he saw the bill?
  • If I woke up with a CC bill for over $28k I'd sure as hell lawyer up. That being said... what kind of stripper takes CC?
