Bride Sues Hotel For Emotional Distress After Hotel Guest Bares All


DT_weddingceremony01_20_677x380_FitToBoxSmallDimension_Center   Planning a wedding is stressful.  So many things that can go wrong...  

 

  So understandably, one bride asked theoperators of the Doubletree Hotel & Suites in historic Charleston to assure her that her courtyard ceremony "would not be disrupted by hotel guests not in attendance."*   Not as understandably, the hotel allegedly agreed to this clause.   Now, the wedding venue - the hotel's courtyard area -  is overlooked by guestrooms, and on the big day, one hotel guest decided to bare all in the window of his room while the wedding ceremony below was in progress.    The distraught bride has now sued the hotel for what sounds like an intentional infliction of emotional distress claim, and seeks actual and punitive damages.

Courthouse News has more.

*Presumably, there would be no lawsuit if the alleged nudist had been a guest of the wedding itself.
