Trees Files Its Response to Lawsuit Involving Patron Who Sued Over Andy Dick's Dick

Categories: The Courts

Still hard to believe, but back in May -- or, five long months after the incident occurred -- a gentleman by the name of Robert Tucker claimed in court docs that he'd been emotionally distressed and otherwise humiliated and "defamed" when Andy Dick yanked down his skirt and "forced his genitals against the left side" of Tucker's face during a December 19 show at Trees.  Feel free to relive that moment over and over and over again right here. Not nearly as good as, say, the James Caan episode of NewsRadio. But that's not likely to be entered into evidence, is it?

Anyway. Whilst digging around for something else on the county's website, I thought I'd see if anyone ever responded to the initial complaint filed two months ago. And, whaddya know, on Monday Trees filed its answer, which boils down to: The club isn't liable for the deeds of an independent contractor. Further, says the response:
Defendant denies that it knew or should have known of the previous behavior of co-Defendant Andrew R. Dick. However, in the alternative, Defendant alleges that Plaintiff was aware of the behavior that he alleges in his Petition and assumed the risk by attending the event.
The filing follows. No response yet from Dick's attorneys, who may be tied up with more pressing matters at the moment. Trees Response to Andy Dick Suit

He should have just knocked Andy the fuck out. He would have been an internet celebrity for like 4 or 5 days for doing that.

"What do you do when a guy is rubbing his dick up against your face--no matter the size?" I cannot tell you that I've answered this question, when blatantly asked, by my curious female friends, like 5 times in the last month. The answer is always the same.

Just because you know things, doesn't mean you shouldn't share.

If I lacked any class at all...I might make a statement about tea bagging.

The most I would give Robert Tucker, and everyone at the show, is their admission. Who goes to see Andy Dick anyways?

Uh, did something break at the Observer??  A full day without JWP???  Did Schutze's manservant forget to gas the Bentley?

Wow..talk about a round-about way of playing CYA, Andy Dick has been a trainwreck for years and EVERYONE, even my nearly 70 yr old mother, knows that. While I love the staff at Trees, bringing in guys like Andy Dick is sheerly idiotic and tanamount to throwing a lit match on a pile of oily rags, as this guy has been trouble for years, he's like a unfunny Andy Kaufmann with a coke habit and chemical imbalance. Heres hoping clint & the gang at Tree Fitty learn their lesson from this case and get out easy..
