Vegas Bouncer’s Suit Against Mayweather Dismissed

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Nevada judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a nightclub bouncer against Floyd Mayweather Jr. that alleged the champion boxer and his entourage became violent after they were carded at a Las Vegas hotspot.

Clark County District Judge Kenneth Cory dismissed the lawsuit without a hearing last
week.

The lawsuit was filed in May by Clay Gerling, a bouncer for the Drai nightclub at Bill’s Gamblin’ Hill on the Las Vegas Strip. The suit claimed Mayweather’s bodyguard choked Gerling after he asked Mayweather and his entourage for their identification cards In January 2010.

Attorneys for Mayweather said in a court motion that the lawsuit should be dismissed
because it was so vague.

Mayweather has a history of court dealings. The Las Vegas boxer is undefeated in 41
fights.
