MANHATTAN (CN) – Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club got a customer drunk and rang up $28,000 in fraudulent bills on his credit card, the man claims in New York County Court.
W. A. Ilg sued HDV-Manhattan LLC, aka The Hustler Club aka The Larry Flynt Hustler Club. The club is at 642 W. 51st St. in Manhattan.
Ilg claims: “Defendant wrongfully served plaintiff excess alcoholic beverages such that plaintiff was no longer capable of conducting financial transactions. Thereafter, defendant wrongfully charged $28,109.60 to plaintiff’s credit card, a sum far in excess of any reasonable costs for said alcoholic beverages.”
Ilg is not the club’s first customer to make such claims. In January 2010, a Delaware man sued The Hustler Club, claiming it charged him more than $21,000 for a $300 lap dance, according to the Daily News.
Ilg says the club refuses to return his money.
He wants the money back and punitive damages for fraud and wrongful conversion.
He is represented by Paul Kerson with Leavitt, Kerson & Duane.
