Man kicked out of dance hall sues bouncers for being too rough
Although the Dixie Dance Hall is gone, the suits against the former Crocket Street hangout continue. In October 2006, bouncers tossed Zachary Bailey out of the club. Bailey has now filed a lawsuit, alleging the bouncers were too rough.
Although Bailey's suit was filed in mid-November, past the statute of limitations, the court officially lists the suit's filing date as Oct. 7.
An Orange County clerk said an exception was made for the suit because it was backlogged and filed a month late due to Hurricane Ike.
Court documents show that sometime in October 2006, security personnel working for The Dixie allegedly injured Bailey.
The suit does not state how Bailey was injured or what he was doing to cause the bouncers to apprehend him.
All the suit says is the defendant failed to conduct security in "a safe and reasonable manner."
Bailey is suing The Dixie for exemplary damages, claiming the company and its employees intentionally inflicted him with great harm.
He is represented by attorney David Dies of the Dies & Parkhurst law firm.
The case has been assigned to Judge Pat Clark of the 128th Judicial District.
Case No. A080424-c
