Afraid of the dummy exhibited at Planet Hollywood hotel casino, a client has sued the hotel, demanding compensation of $ 10 thousand.
According to Kent Jacobs Boutwell, when he entered his room, he saw the silhouette of a large figure barely discernible in the darkness. Thinking that a robber was in front of him, the man rushed away. Escaping from the ” intruder “, the plaintiff injured his “body, limbs, organs, mind and nervous systems, resulting in conditions that may be permanent and disabling”.
An ominous figure turned out a promotional dummy in a racing costume from Miller Lite exposed in a glass cabinet. In his lawsuit, Boutwell argues that the Planet Hollywood administration should have warned him of a “potentially dangerous decor.”
“I have experience in dealing with cases involving casino hotels. However, this case is a unique set of facts, ” Richard Johnson, the plaintiff’s lawyer, admitted.
