Guy Sues Hooker For Refund Plus $1.8 Million!

Hubert Blackman, a 22-year-old student at Borough of Manhattan Community College in NYC, who clearly doesn't pay any attention in English class, has filed a lawsuit against the company of the hooker he hired during a recent Las Vegas vacation for committing an "illegal sexual act" on him. (UPDATE: It was a hand job.) As a direct result of the experience, Hubert (pictured) says he's suffering from a “psycotic disorder”. True story.
Blackman, a college student, said in an interview Thursday that he was on vacation and staying at the Stratosphere on Dec. 17 when he called Las Vegas Exclusive Personals to arrange for a stripper to come to his room and dance for him. Blackman said the woman, who appeared to be in her mid 20s, stripped and performed a lap dance for $155 and a sex act for another $120. He said that the next morning, he called Las Vegas Exclusive Personals to demand his money back, saying he was dissatisfied because the entertainer didn't stay for the promised one hour and left after a half hour. Blackman said he also told the company he was incapable of making an informed agreement with the stripper because he was drunk at the time. Dissatisfied when Las Vegas Exclusive Personals didn't arrange for a refund, Blackman said he contacted Metro Police and was told he faced arrest for such conduct and was advised to contact the Better Business Bureau. Instead, after returning home he filed suit in federal court in New York, charging "An escort did an illegal sexual act on me during her paid service to me'' and "I almost had gotten arrested." Blackman said he now needs medical treatment for a mental condition related to the incident. In the suit, which he filed without an attorney, Blackman said: "I would like the court to close the business. I also would like to get my $275 payment back and a $1.8 million verdict for the tragic event that happened." In the interview Thursday, Blackman said it was the dancer who solicited the sex act -- but he acknowledged he was aware at the time that prostitution was illegal in Las Vegas.

If our jaws weren't already on the floor, we'd be laughing at this donkey. Peep the official legal filing below -- especially our highlight sections.



Sidebar: Certain forms of heavily-regulated prostitution are legal in most of Nevada, but were outlawed in Las Vegas in 2009.

SHOCKING UPDATE (Feb. 7, 2011): A judge has tossed out Hubert's lawsuit saying he failed to “allege to a ‘reasonable probability’ that he has a cognizable claim in excess of $75,000,” the minimum amount needed to qualify for federal jurisdiction. Furthermore, the judge said Hubert's case is not fit for federal court and he should have filed the suit in Nevada, not in New York. Hubert told the Smoking Gun he plans to appeal.
