Prince And His Posse Sue Double Seven Over Bar Brawl

New, 6 comments

It was five months ago that superbrawler Adam Hock knocked out Monaco Prince Pierre Casiraghi, Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos, and Vladimir Roitfeld at Meatpacking District hot spot Double Seven after the trio had allegedly started chugging from his bottle of Grey Goose and disrespecting the ladies seated at his table. Casiraghi fled back to Europe after the brawl, while Hock was charged with a misdemeanor and celebrated by Stephen Colbert. He also sued the Prince over a shoulder boo boo.

Now the Prince and his posse have decided to sue Hock, his attorney, the club, and the club's owner Jeffrey Jah over the incident, saying the club should have known that Hock was “a person of pugilistic propensity," and shouldn't have been serving him that night. This seems to follow the Tony Parker strategy, although it seems dubious that a club or its owners should be liable for the reputations of its patrons when considering who is allowed where. The defendants in this suit promise to fight the charges.
