Idiot Hypnotized by Las Vegas Showman, Loses $47K, then Sues
File this one in the “you’re not going to believe this” category.
Some idiot from Phoenix attended a magic show in Las Vegas and claims he was hypnotized during the performance, which caused him to lose $47,000 in an undisclosed manner (gambling losses?). Now, two years later, he’s suing the stage performer and the show promoters.
So, let me get this straight.
Dumb tourist dude attends a Las Vegas stage show, somehow gets hypnotized, suffers an undisclosed loss, and then sues?
Isn’t this the formula for the entire Las Vegas tourist industry?
— coax ’em into coming,
— bombard ’em with stimuli,
— induce ’em to blow their money,
— and put ’em back on the plane?
If this frivolous lawsuit ever hits the courtroom, I sure hope I’m on the jury. I could use a good laugh.
