Wow. That was superlatively assy. I hope Ascano gets fired and ends up working in a Waffle House somewhere.

Why is it that most lawsuits like this happen so long after the incident happened? "Oh, I'm so offended, so I'm going to wait a year and a half to file suit." (incident was Jan 2004)

/not sue happy, doesn't get it, will never get it, mmm bop bop bop
 
2005-04-28 07:45:52 AM  
This is truly outrageous. They should have properly been called "bins Laden."
 
2005-04-28 07:46:00 AM  
whiskymike, I don't do Plaintiffs' work, but it takes time to analyze a claim, do some investigation, evaluate the claim, and research the legality of it. There are sanctions for filing a frivolous lawsuit, and there is a statute of limitations in place for the specific purpose of allowing a claim to be examined before filing. So while your concern is valid, I don't think it can be assumed that the delay was caused by lack of passion or outrage.

Wow, being looked down on by a freakin' Denny's Manager.

Should have just told him to STFU and get back to work cleaning up puke in the men's room and helping the passed out hooker in the ladies room.


(I'm guessing all Denny's are like the one in my hometown.)

I suppose you're right. It just seems that 16 months is quite some time...

Shrug. I still miss the breakfast dagwood.
 
2005-04-28 08:00:21 AM  
The most depressing thing about this is that most people treated this way probably don't fight back. This manager just happened to pick on a group of sophisticated businessmen who either knew their rights or knew to inquire about them.
 
2005-04-28 08:00:25 AM  

Whoa....wait a second here. Denny's in trouble for racisim?

unpossible

Denny's should give them a free meal. The bin Ladens' lawyer should pay his clients the $4 million he told them to ask for.
 
2005-04-28 08:13:49 AM  
Go them. When I think about the Middle Eastern and Islamic prejudices so many in this country has had since 9-11, it nauseates me.
 
2005-04-28 08:19:32 AM  
Ahhh Denny's, the upscale waffle house...

//The counter girl at the waffle house in belcamp, md is fixed, and her husband cheats on her, she wants to move to delaware...
 
2005-04-28 08:23:28 AM  
I once managed to win a stuffed animal from one of those claw-grabs-a-prize games that they have there.

What I don't understand is how anyone could feel that, in this day and age, calling a bunch of Muslims "bin Ladens" would NOT get you into trouble. Anyone in the staff who was involved should be fired.
 
2005-04-28 08:29:56 AM  
It does sound a little odd that a cop got involved and sided against the guys though, not impossible of course but it points out that we're only seeing one side of the story.
 
2005-04-28 08:37:31 AM  
Here's your Grand Slam in the Ass Breakfast, biyatch!

I need to go to Denny's and ride the suenami.
 
2005-04-28 08:46:22 AM  
Some people are so goddamn stupid.

When dealing with the legal system in any western nation, anything under 5 years is a simple parting the red sea period. You wouldn't believe the bullshiat involved in a simple no contest, no children, property division mutually satisfied divorce.

bin laden, table of 7, bin laden
 
2005-04-28 09:48:45 AM  
"It does sound a little odd that a cop got involved and sided against the guys though"

Unfortunately the Cop probably had no choice.
It's private property and they wanted the group to leave.
Stupidity isn't a crime, defiant trespass is.

Memo

From: President of Denny's
To: All Store Managers

Dear Racist Asshats,

You're making us look like a bunch of jerks. CUT THAT shiat OUT! NOW!

Sincerely,

Nelson

Actually, this has been ongoing for a while now. It has just now made the papers.

I work for an attorney whose buddy is one of the Plaintiffs, so I kind of know a little about this incident.

You would be surprised at the length of time it takes to bring a case to trial. We do mainly med mal here, and we have quite a few cases that are over 2 years old. The problem with that is, people don't realize that it takes time to get records, review them, set up numerous depositions (try finding a mutually convenient date when there are 3 or more attorneys involved). It is fustrating more than anything.

Unfortunately the Cop probably had no choice.

If he knew that racial discrimination was the sole motive for making the customers leave it might be a civil rights violation to assist.
 
2005-04-28 11:30:39 AM  
"According to the suit, the discrimination started when the waitress who took their drink orders took "an unusually long time" to bring their drinks and take their food order."

No, that's just how Denny's treats all their customers.
 
2005-04-28 12:35:30 PM  
That's why I go to Waffle House.

/1 order of hash browns & chili please

go them. i hope they win. i hope the deed of the dennys is given to them in adition to the 4 million bucks.


Yeah, because being offended gives you the right to be a millionaire. They should have just waited for the manager to get off and kicked his ass.
 
2005-04-28 01:57:21 PM  
so... the terrorists won right?
 
2005-04-28 01:57:47 PM  
This is really going to take the wind out of my lawsuit against Denny's. I am seeking reperations for the time they served me a "Penultimate Omelette" and a "Lumberjack Slam" that was far from the rough anal deflowering that the menu hinted at.

Go them. When I think about the Middle Eastern and Islamic prejudices so many in this country has had since 9-11, it nauseates me.


Of course, in those progressive Middle Eastern countries they don't hate Americans. Does that nauseate you too? Funny how the same libs who say we shouldn't dare be prejudiced over 9/11 are some of the same people saying America deserved 9/11 because of our foreign policy. So they can hate us for bad conduct, but we can't hold a grudge.

Now call me a racist redneck for pointing that out. Of course, I am not even sugesting that people should act like this Denny's dickweed. I am pointing out more misplaced liberal outrage. But you libs will never pass up an attempt to scream "racism!".

If only liberals were as outraged at suicide bombers in Tel Aviv as they were some redneck manager at Denny's offending some people.
 
2005-04-28 02:12:10 PM  
Ahh yes....I sure do miss living in the racist south.

/not
 
2005-04-28 02:13:35 PM  
they should have ordered the Little Eichmann Slam.
 
2005-04-28 02:14:04 PM  
Dalisca,

What do you think of the middle eastern and Islamic prejudices in this country _prior_ to 2001 September 11?

uclajd:

Strawman much?
 
2005-04-28 02:15:28 PM  
I dunno, I want to say this is false. I don't know if any manager could really be this dumb... but then again, im an optimist...
 
2005-04-28 02:15:34 PM  
Wow.. being called "bin Ladens" is definitely worth 28 Milliion dollars. Not.
 
2005-04-28 02:17:02 PM  
uclajd, you racist redneck. Do you think an eye for an eye will bring world peace? Go back to your shack in the hills and drink some more beer. Hang a couple "darkies" while you're at it.

/kidding

You wouldn't believe the bullshiat involved in a simple no contest, no children, property division mutually satisfied divorce.

What is involved? Here it takes one visit to an attorney and a 6 month "cooling off period." Otherwise, they just give you what you want. Guess it varies by state, though.
 
2005-04-28 02:18:50 PM  
Why didn't he call them Husseins. I mean thats all the same thing right?

Denny's=Ultimate White Trash Magnetry
 
2005-04-28 02:19:48 PM  
Everyone in here rooting for the plantiff's have already found the manager guilty. Is it possible that these 4 guys planned this? Have they brought similar suits against other food chains?

No, people don't do that sort of thing. Jsut ask Wendy's.
 
2005-04-28 02:20:09 PM  
Denny's...we offer the most inexpensive environment for you to encounter discrimination and racist remarks!

Even Waffle House is polite to everyone.
 
2005-04-28 02:20:29 PM  
So the assumption is these guys are telling the truth without a shred of evidence. Nice work guys.
 
2005-04-28 02:20:43 PM  
Bin Laden would never order a 'Moon's Over My Hammy'
 
2005-04-28 02:20:43 PM  
And that's why Denny's hasn't gotten a penny of my money since 1994.
 
2005-04-28 02:20:44 PM  
what a bunch of babies.
 
2005-04-28 02:20:56 PM  
We should call in Bugs Bunny to saw Florida off and just let it float away.

2005-04-28 02:21:03 PM  
oh, come on... you know those dudes were doing the "la la la la la la" thing right after 9/11. Cheering away and saying allah (admiral) ackbar over and over... they hate us, admit it. And the rednecks hate them. It's the circle of racism, just embrace it and move on... it ain't gonna change
 
2005-04-28 02:21:13 PM  
Okay: So these men were offended and rightfully so. They may even be justified in suing the Denny's manager. But how is suing for FOUR MILLION DOLLARS EACH, representative of justice?
 
2005-04-28 02:21:22 PM  
why not 40 mil.... this is stupid

fire the manager apologize to them give them a table and a free meal over and done..

other than a lawyer who in their right mind thinks these guys deserve 4 mil?
 
2005-04-28 02:21:48 PM  
Mearen: So the assumption is these guys are telling the truth without a shred of evidence.

Sounds like you assume the opposite.
 
2005-04-28 02:22:20 PM  
uclajd: You're a racist redneck. Next time try not to live down to my expectations.
