DELRAY BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Hilton’s insurance company has apparently offered to settle the case brought by Jeff Kasky, an attorney, a homeowner in The Bridges, and father of March For Our Lives founder Cameron Kasky. As reported exclusively earlier this week, Jeff Kasky sued Hilton and the owner of its Hampton Inn franchise in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, after personal items were “misplaced” by hotel management during a reservation mishap.

Kasky told early Friday that just days after our article appeared and received international attention, Hilton decided to settle the case after months of ignoring his claim. Here’s part of our original reporting:

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 “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, according to Kasky, is now paying the full value of his claim which he says isn’t just about the money, but the principle of major companies brushing off customers.
