Douglas Marchbanks, 18, had the bright idea of suing a strip club. Marchbanks, a Deaf man, claimed that he was unable to fully access the services of Greased Lightning, a notorious haunt of truckers and priests.
It looked as it his case would be successful when one of the entertainers, a dancer named Melodee, came forward. She claimed that had Mr. Marchbanks simply asked her when they met in the club, she would have been able to provide access as she had formerly been an American Sign Language interpreter. She had "given him a tour of the dressing room." The jury asked why she had not volunteered the information to the guest; she casually replied "My hands were already full at the time."
