MIAMI — Lending at least some credence to the rumors President Donald Trump dons a red cloak and carries a pitchfork in his down times, a lawsuit just filed against Trump National Doral Miami shows hellacious fires rage near the famous golf course.
How do we know?
A plaintiff identified only as Steven Friedman claims in a complaint recently filed with the Miami-Dade County court system he slipped and fell on the resort’s basketball court, and injured himself.
In the lawsuit, Friedman blames a layer of ashes on the court for making the surface so slippery he hurt himself.
And the ashes, Friedman thinks, came from a fire pit that had been set up on the court hours before the alleged accident.
A fire pit at The Donald’s prized golf resort? Just saying!
The lawsuit doesn’t provide details about why Friedman was at the resort when the accident allegedly occurred, in April 2014. And his lawyer, Judson Cohen, didn’t return a call for comment.
But if you believe the complaint, Friedman suffered pain and suffering and mental anguish, and of course the “loss of the ability to earn money” — and he wants the president’s family business to pay for that.
Trump family lawyer Alan Garten didn’t respond to a text message requesting comment about the lawsuit. Trump National’s management company, Trump International Hotel Management LLC, has yet to respond to the complaint.
