The city of Daytona Beach Shores, Fla., agreed to pay $195,000 to settle a lawsuit in which six people claim they were strip-searched unlawfully by police.
Four of the six were strip-searched during a raid at the Biggins Gentleman’s Club, where they work as strippers.
Norris Sydnor III’s $200,000 lawsuit against Rich’s Nail Salon of Landover, Md., for “humiliateing” him last December is scheduled for trial as News of the Weird goes to press.

John Luckett filed lawsuits on 11 different complaints earlier this year against the Las Vegas arcade Pinball Hall of Fame, claiming that he was wrongfully barred from the premises for obnoxiously complaining about out-of-service machines, especially “Xenon,” which he says he has mastered so well that he can play almost indefinitely on an initial 50 cents.
Among the damages requested, Luckett is demanding $300 for each “therapy” session he might have to undergo to overcome the trauma of being ejected.
Luckett has filed more than 40 lawsuits in his role of, as he put it, avenging people’s attempts to “screw” him.
