Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club Sued After Patron Injured In Brawl
A man is pressing charges against Jay-Z’s New York based sports bar and lounge after being dragged into a scuffle that took place at the 40/40 club in March 2018, according to reports. Jose Irizarry has filed a lawsuit against the lounge after he suffered injuries during a brawl between club attendees and security.
Within the lawsuit, Irizarry claims he was enjoying himself, until he became a civilian casualty. Once a fracas broke out, he was a victim of injuries, as he took blows to the head and body. He also alleges the club’s shortage of security in conjunction with the inability to control a crowd led him to suffer from the fight.
The patron is seeking the Manhattan club cover lost wages, medical expenses, and for enduring his pain and suffering. Jay-Z is not named in the lawsuit.
