Antoinette Basso has filed a lawsuit alleging that she alleges that she was severely injured by a failing inebriated Santa Clause. The allegedly stewed Santa was Daniel Aulwes, who Basso claims fell on her and pushing her face first into the sidewalk outside of a Chicago restaurant.
Basso is claiming $50,000 for “pain … disability and disfigurement.”
It has long been rumored that the red nose and cheeks were alcohol induced. Alcohol lowers your blood pressure by opening up your blood vessels and gives people the characteristic red nose.
This is only the latest potential Santa suit, here. In New Jersey, the Santas have tort claims against the naughty attacked by wild animals. Indeed, Santa sightings in court range from murder to property damage to parole violations.
