    The world is full of jerks. Just found another one.

    And, if this incident caused his stress, the continued re-hashing is not going to help.

    I despise what a litigious society we've become. My small, family business was hit with a very unfair lawsuit that cost us about $20,000 two years ago in settlement.

    With that said, I can't help but think that this lawsuit has some actual merit.

    Take away the idea for a moment that this guy is just trying to get a payday, and let's imagine a scenario:

    You just checked in at PHo, open your dark room, see a "person" inside and quickly turn away to flee. In doing so, you blow out your ACL. Would you not think you are then entitled to sue the hotel for compensation, including pain and suffering, after your trip is ruined by the stupidity of putting a lifelike mannequin in a place it doesn't belong?

    I don't know what this guy's "injuries" were but it's not so far-fetched to imagine some validity to his lawsuit.

    When this lawsuit is dismissed (and it will be) this jag should not only pay for any PH legal expenses there should be a huge fine to deter future nuisance suits of this kind. He's obviously hoping PH will throw some money his way to drop the suit. They better not do it.

    I assume PH will give him 10K and ban him for life from CET properties.

    I would hope the judge just tosses this. The attorneys who take these cases should be taken to task.

    If this guy wins, I should at least get some free room nights for having to sleep next to that creepy doll in the "Willow" room. :wink2:

    What room has a mannequin in it and Sonya what's the creepy doll you mention?
    Never stayed at PH just thought they had photos on the wall and nothing more.

    I wonder if he has ever visited Madame Tussauds, that would freak him out.

    He'll probably go on SSI and we can all support him the rest of his life.
