Man suing strip club over $50,000 bill

CLEARWATER, Fla., July 8 (UPI) -- A Florida man is suing a gentleman's club he says charged him $50,000 for a night he spent about $600.

The lawsuit stems from a night in March when Lokesh Simon James went to the Bliss Cabaret in Clearwater, The Tampa (Fla.) Tribune reported.

James said he was at the gentleman's club for about three hours and left thinking he spent about $600 on dances, tips and drinks. But when he looked at his credit card account a few days later he found he was charged $50,000 for the evening.

Now, James has filed a lawsuit against the gentleman's club and a former Bliss Cabaret bartender, Doug Berube, and is seeking to be repaid the money he says he was overcharged, plus interest, attorney fees and court costs.

"There's no way to spend that kind of money," said James' attorney, David Sockol. "How many dances would it take before you run up $50,000 at $20 a dance?''

Sockol said his client is in "shock."

Bliss Cabaret officials declined comment.
