Judgement Zone: Women Sues After Restaurant Refuses To Serve Her
Welcome to the Judgement Zone where you get to sound off and give your opinion on what happening!
Here is today's judgment zone story:
Kathleen Hampton, after experiencing what she says was poor service at an Italian restaurant in filed a lawsuit for $100,000.
Hampton says she and her husband made reservations to eat at Enzo’s Caffe Italiano on Valentine’s Day. At the last minute, her husband decided not to join her. So she decided to attend by herself.
She sat alone at the table for two, but says no one would take her order. Instead, she says, she was asked to give up the table.
Hampton said she tried to give the restaurant a way out by ordering to go, “and they told me they don’t do take out.”
Restaurant owner Enzo Lanzadoro recalls a very different scenario:
“She made [a] reservation for two and when she got there, said ‘Oh, just by myself,’” . “We offered for her to sit at the bar with other single diners since Valentine’s Day is very busy and all we know is she got up [from the table] and left without paying after she drank two glasses of wine.”
Hampton, asked for $100,000 from the restaurant and a “public apology both in person and in writing in news and community papers.”
You Decide...Should of Mrs. Hampton get $100,000 or was the restaurant right?
