Moron of the Week

I swear that frivolous lawsuits never get old! They provide some of the most entertaining blog material that I’ve ever seen. And as long as we’re giving out our “Moron of the Week Award” here, I’ll continue to publish these stories for your amusement.
Meet Hubert Blackman of New York City. He is suing a Las Vegas company over an unfortunate dancer/hooker/stripper experience. According to this Las Vegas Sun article, Blackman said “that that he was on vacation and staying at the Stratosphere” on December 17th “when he called Las Vegas Exclusive Personals to arrange for a stripper to come to his room and dance for him.” Blackman said the woman “stripped and performed a lap dance for $155 and a sex act for another $120.” Yikes!
Now here’s where Blackman’s troubles start. The next morning, he “called Las Vegas Exclusive Personals to demand his money back, saying he was dissatisfied because the entertainer didn’t stay for the promised one hour and left after a half hour.” He also claimed that he “was incapable of making an informed agreement with the stripper because he was drunk at the time.” Yeah, saying that you were drunk always gets you off the hook, right?
However, when the entertainment company wouldn’t refund his money, he called the Las Vegas Metro Police, who told him that he “faced arrest for such conduct and was advised to contact the Better Business Bureau.” Instead, Blackman filed a lawsuit in New York Federal Court asking for his $275 back, for the entertainment company to be shut down and for $1.8M in damages. You can read the actual lawsuit here. It’s rather entertaining and filled with grammatical errors. LOL, instead of suing, he should be looking for a good clinic to test him for venereal l diseases. And if you’re curious what he looks like, Business Insider posted a picture of Hubert here.
