A story like this surfaces every few months. One day, when I have the time, I will go back and research the court documents to follow up on the OUTCOME of each case. It makes the mainstream news when the suit is first made public, but somehow seems to disappear by the time a resolution surfaces.
Situations like this reflect the precise reason why most clubs hire exotic dancers as independent contractors instead of employees. Notice, Mr Ireland decided to sue the CLUB not the entertainer. Yet to what extent is the club responsible for an entertainer’s conduct?
