Waitress files $3 million lawsuit because some guy “forcibly” kissed her.

If only judges had balls and woulds tell people like her to fuck off.

But they don’t so she won.


A Philadelphia jury awarded a waitress $3million after she suffered an injury when a drunk diner forcibly kissed her nearly two years ago.

Security footage inside Scarpetta restaurant in Rittenhouse Square showed Gregory Englesbe assaulting Kristin Lisi on the night of October 7, 2016.

According to the lawsuit, the South Jersey mortgage bank executive had been drinking and dining with a group at the upscale restaurant for several hours. At one point, they became so loud that they had to be transferred to a private dining room.

Around 10pm, Lisi came face to face with Englesbe and two other men, as she was walking down a hallway at the upscale restaurant.

‘You’ve been walking by me all night, and I want a kiss,’ Englesbe told Lisi, grabbing her, spinning her around and then forcibly kissing her.

One of the other men who was with Englesbe then leaned in and said ‘Now it’s my turn’ – trying to plant a kiss on Lisi as well.

‘Incredibly, immediately before [Englesbe] grabbed the plaintiff by the throat, he was in the hallway with John Doe 2, who was actually unzipping his pants in the restaurant hallway when he was smacked by defendant Englesbe, who was heartily laughing, in a “put it away” gesture,’ the court papers add.

Lisi claimed in her lawsuit that the assault caused her to suffer nerve damage from a torn rotator cuff. She provided doctor’s testimony and worker’s compensation documents as evidence during the trial.

‘He starts at her throat and works his way around,’ Lisi’s attorney, Dion Rassias, said of the incident, according to Philly.com. ‘It’s like being in a car crash – your body can’t react to it, and it becomes involuntary traction at that point.’

Lisi reported the incident to management, who in turn called police – though criminal charges were never filed.

After deliberating for four hours last week, a jury decided to award Lisi $600,000 in compensatory damages and $2.4million in punitive damages.

While Englesbe admitted to kissing Lisi and accepted the blame for harming her – he said he didn’t believe he caused such an extensive injury.

‘The plaintiff’s injuries are either non-existent, exaggerated, and or pre-existing,’ his lawyers said in court documents.

Following the decision last week, Englesbe resigned from the Cherry Hill, New Jersey mortgage firm where he was chief executive, effective Tuesday.

Lisi has since left the restaurant world and has no intention of returning to the industry.

    Of course she left the restaurant and has no intention of being a waitress any more; she was awarded 3,000,000

    I wonder what Teddy Kennedy would have done, and probably did do, under the same circumstances. I bet the 3 million here would pale to what that asshole had to shell out till he got smart and created what was later to be known as the Arkancide solution….glub, glub!

    I say good for her. Those guys were arrogant rich scumbags who thought they could harass this waitress, and do what?…pretend to rape her? WTF? I would agree with this being BS if it was just an attempt at a stolen kiss, but we have so much more here. The award may be excessive, but these assholes can afford it. The purpose of punitives is to send a STRONG message…the kind of message that “hurts”. This rich asshole would have laughed off paying just the $600k…he’s not laughing off $3M. If this was my wife/sister/mother etc., I would have hurt him in a whole different way. Sorry, in this day and age, forcing yourself on a woman and whipping your dick out is NOT a simple case of “men being men”…it’s disgusting, and they should have more than known better. They know now of course.
