David Versus Goliath. Employee Sues Country Club, Claims Forced To Drive Personal Car During Deluge. Trial Days Away…

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Woodfield Country Club may learn this week whether its gamble of doing battle with an employee over car damage is a smart legal move or a PR disaster that could severely damage public perception and employee relations.
Woodfield boasts million-dollar homes. Homeowners pay a mandatory $60,000 initiation fee, a $38,000 equity contribution, and roughly $20,000 a year in dues. Management at Woodfield is accused of forcing a restaurant worker to drive his own 2006 Honda Accord to deliver takeout food from one of the community’s seven restaurants to homeowners hunkered down during a torrential storm in June of 2020. The storm was apparently so bad that a “red alert” was issued in the community — prohibiting workers from being out and about. But Jason Stolarz says he was forced to deliver food in his own personal car to homeowners unwilling to venture out in the rain.
Stolarz claims that his car was so damaged in the storm that the engine and related repairs cost $5,747.80. Apparently verifying his claim that he was forced to use his Honda Accord for Woodfield work, Stolarz’s insurance company refused to pay the claim — saying the car was being used for business purposes.
Woodfield has been battling the claim for more than two years. Trial is now set for Friday. Stolarz — in a true “David vs. Goliath” battle — is representing himself and has maneuvered this fight through his court filing in March. Woodfield is relying on attorney Keith Hammond in Orlando who, according to court records, has been unable to resolve the case.
Read the complaint, written by Jason Stolarz, below. Woodfield did not file a written response.
