Customer reply replied 3 years ago
it was an accident. The man apologize and quickly walk outside. But being seen nake by a gym member of the same club makes the woman feel very uncomfortable. This is the 2nd time that this happened in NYSC. Once in new york gym, then another time in new Jersey gym. A man has walked into the Woman's locker room.
The woman spoke to the manager of NYSC (gym), the manager also asked if it was an honest mistake. Woman said yes, it was a mistake. manager did not really offer anything to the woman. What do you think the gym can offer to the woman?
Business Lawyer: Ely, Attorney replied 3 years ago
Thank you.
Frankly speaking, there is little the gym can offer than perhaps letting her out of the contract.
To sue in a state court, one needs to have a "cause of action." There are numerous causes of action, such as "breach of contract," "negligence," "fraud," "unjust enrichment," etc., as well as causes of action rooted in statutory law. Every state has their own although they are very similar to each other in every state because they all stem from the same common law. A pleading in Court needs at least one cause of action, although it is not unusual to have more than one.
Here, the gym is not liable because they cannot reasonably require a "guard" at the women's locker room.
The man may be liable (very unlikely), but then the woman has to sue the man - the contractual relationship between the woman and the gym is unaffected by the man's actions.
Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I want to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal.
