American Express filed a lawsuit this week against a chief executive of Savvis Communications, a publicly held telecommunications company. The complaint, which includes causes of action for breach of contract and unjust enrichment, alleges that the executive and three guests ran up a $241,000 tab at a Scores, a popular "topless" nightclub in Manhattan. It alleges that he charged the evening's activities on his American Express card, and he has failed to pay the bill. The executive and Savvis' counsel assert that some of the charges were fraudulent. Apparently, the Manhattan D.A. is presently investigating alleged overcharges at Scores.
