DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Attorney Jeffrey Kasky, who is the father of “March For Our Lives” founder and former Marjorie Stoneman-Douglas High School Student Cameron Kasky, is suing Hilton over underwear and retainers. And it’s not quite as bizarre as it sounds.
Kasky, who lives in Delray Beach’s “The Bridges” and says he moonlights as a tour manager for big-name rock groups, was in a Hampton Inn in Eastern Pennsylvania when a tour booking error meant his room was given to someone else while he was at an event. When he returned, hoping for a quick shower and change of clothes before a 3 a.m. tour bus departure, the front desk clerk told him that his room was given to another guest.
“It happens,” said Kasky exclusively to BocaNewsNow.com. “That’s not Hilton’s fault.”
But what is Hilton’s fault, according to Kasky, is that his personal possessions were taken by the Hampton Inn and somehow lost. The overnight clerk apparently told Kasky that the General Manager would get back to him. It never happened. Hampton Inn is a division of Hilton.
“I had to chase these people for weeks,” he said. “Finally, I started calling corporate. My calls were routed to India where each call led to a new case being opened but no one solved the problem for two solid months.”
Among the items Kasky says the Hampton Inn took: a set of custom dental retainers valued at $895, a back-up battery pack valued at $70, shirts valued at $70, one or two pair of underwear valued at $35, and an undershirt valued at $3. He says just before filing the suit, he spoke with Hilton’s General Counsel who apparently got the company’s insurance carrier involved. He couldn’t believe what they asked.
“They asked how old underwear was, trying to adjust and depreciate its value.”
Hilton has not yet responded to the lawsuit. The company apparently claimed that while it owns the Hampton Inn name, it’s not responsible for what its franchisees do. The specific hotel in Jim Thorpe, PA is owned by Leighton Investment Group, LP, which is also named in the suit just filed in Palm Beach County. A lawsuit that isn’t just about the money, said Kasky, but the principle of fighting a company that he says couldn’t care less.
“I am so sick of being a meat bag to these billion-dollar corporations,” said Kasky. “I can’t let people get away with this.”
