Hilton Minneapolis orgy lawsuit settled

There's a reason hotels have "do not disturb" signs and locks on the doors. Aside from safety reasons, utilizing the lock is a good way to ensure no one walks in while you're enjoying the company of your travel companion. Unfortunately, some hotel employees at the Hilton Minneapolis didn't make use of their own amenities and opted to do the deed in the hotel's ballroom, causing a little concern (and ultimately leading to a lawsuit) filed by other employees.

Hilton just settled the lawsuit that was filed back in December 2008 claiming two hotel employees were fired after walking in on an orgy taking place in the hotel's ballroom. No details were released from the lawsuit, except to say that the employees were threatened and later fired after witnessing upper management in some compromising positions after hours.

Here's what the Minneapolis-St. Paul Star-Tribune had to say:

"According to papers filed in U.S. District Court, the former employees and the Hilton Minneapolis settled their lawsuit. Unlike the attention-inducing complaint, however, no details were provided. Calls to attorneys representing the former hotel workers -- Deborah Smith and April Bezdichek -- and the hotel were not immediately returned Monday.

At the time the suit was filed, Smith and Bezdichek said they were fired from their jobs after they complained about what they witnessed. Smith, who was the night manager of a hotel restaurant, said that she opened the door to a hotel banquet room and saw an orgy involving Hilton Hotel upper management. In fact, she observed Hilton executives on top of a table engaging in sexual activity, according to the suit."


There's more to the story, if you want the torrid details.

In the meantime, we remind all hotel guests (and hotel employees) to keep displays of affection in the privacy of your own room.
