Remember the prior story about the man, MIchael Ireland, who sued in tort after he was poked in the eye by a stripper’s high heel at the Cheetah Club near West Palm Beach? Well, he just won a $650,000 settlement for the negligent performance of a striptease.
Ireland was laid low by a stripper named “Suki” after her heel punctured his eye socket and broke bones around his eye and nose. The serious injury left him with permanent double vision (I will not editorialize).
Strippers appear to be generating a growing number of lawsuits these days (here, here, and here). Indeed, we have previously seen tort claims based on the dangerous trajectory of high heels from strippers, here.
