NEW YORK, Dec. 13 (UPI) -- A New York court ordered a man to pay the $28,109.60 tab he accumulated in a single night at Larry Flynt's Hustler Club.

William Ilg had filed a lawsuit against the strip club, alleging he was being fraudulently charged because the number of drinks he was served left him "no longer capable of conducting financial transactions," the New York Daily News reported Thursday.

However, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Manuel Mendez tossed out the lawsuit, which was filed in 2011, and ordered him to pay the full amount.

"There is no duty upon [Hustler Club] to protect plaintiff from the results of his [voluntary] intoxication," Mendez wrote.
