O.J. Simpson threatens $100M lawsuit against Las Vegas hotel after they threw him out

O.J. Simpson threatens $100M lawsuit against Las Vegas hotel after they threw him out

Former NFL star, OJ Simpson is threatening to sue the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas for $100 million over an incident in November that got him kicked out and banned from anywhere close to the establishment.

In November 2017, he was reportedly thrown out by securities of the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, for allegedly getting hostile after he got drunk at one of the bars.

Simpson who was released on parole from a Nevada prison on Oct. 1, after serving nine years for a botched 2007 hotel-room heist in Las Vegas, was subsequently banned from the Cosmopolitan Hotel.

In a letter to the Cosmopolitan, Simpson’s lawyer, Malcolm P. LaVergne claims the Cosmopolitan staff "acted with malice and racial prejudice" toward his client, who was reportedly kicked out of the hotel's Clique Bar Nov. 8 after allegedly getting drunk and disruptive, FOX 5 Vegas reported.

According to the station, LaVergne argues that Simpson “peacefully visited the Cosmopolitan property,” but contends the hotel created a "false narrative" that Simpson "was drunk, became disruptive at the Clique bar, was angry at hotel staff and glasses were broken at the bar," in a bid to negatively impact terms of his parole.

The letter states that hotel staff failed to revoke the ban against Simpson despite police confirming via surveillance video that the accusations against the former pro running back and NBC sportscaster were false, the station reported. 
LaVergne claims the hotel staff violated state and federal law, and has requested the preservation of evidence relating to the case.
