Best Lawsuit Houston 2008 - Walter's on Washington Takes on Its Tormentors - CLOSED
Houston, TX 77008
Walter's owner Pam Robinson had been through this before — new neighbors buy in near her previously existing nightspot and start phoning in noise complaints to the police. In fact, she had even been run off a previous location on Durham. This time around, at her nightspot on Washington, she would take the gloves off and fight back. After some 200 noise complaints coming from one house behind her club, Robinson filed suit against her antagonists, citing tortious interference with contract, private nuisance, harassment, business disparagement, abuse of process and actionable civil conspiracy. Additionally, Robinson promised that if she was forced to close her club, she would open a 24-hour methadone clinic in its stead. All parties, we hear, are playing nice now.
