Fat Daddy's wrongful death suit settled for $795,000

Full story: The York Daily Record

A seven-year-old wrongful death suit against Fat Daddy's Nightclub and Bar, its owners and six bouncers has ended in an arbitrated settlement for $795,000. That agreement calls for the nightclub's insurance carrier to pay that amount to the estate of David A. Potter Jr., specifically Potter's two children.

This is what's wrong with this country. An animal with a medical condition shouldn't have been running his mouth in the first place. Whether you like this bar or not, the bouncers did their job to boot this animal out, now we all pay for it, when this company raises their insurance rates to cover their loss.

Sounds to me like you're the one running your mouth!!! The man was leaving with his wife when his wife was attacked. Next his wife is taken somewhere and he cares enough to try and find her. I'm sure he didn't just run his mouth without cause. Sounds to me like Fat Daddy's and the redneck bouncers got off easy!

It doesn't sound like these bouncers did anything wrong but keep a typical York drunk guy from hurting others in the bar. They didn't hurt him in any way, just held him down until police could take him. This was obviously an accidental death NOT caused by the bouncers.....sad that people are so sue happy these days and taking advantage of sad accidental death in the family and trying to make money off of it. It's sickening. Saying that, fat daddys is filled with the top notch trash of York but that speaks for the people that go there...not the employees. So sad they were punished for doing what was right. If this guy wouldve been aloud back into the bar he probably wouldve hurt someone and then fat daddys would still get sued! I do not agree with this judgement at all....

A bouncer has a job to do...you don't have to like their job or their personality. You don't even have to patronize an establishment like that. The bottom line is they did their job, and weren't even prosecuted criminally. Its unfortunate that someone died as a result, but it was a result of a medical condition, not of a savage beatdown.

Sometimes $hit happens, and most of the time, its a series of poor decisions on someone's part that causes it.

My relative got thrown out of there .. literally THROWN! He was not drunk or causing any trouble.. they just didn't like his halloween costume. Some of you say those bouncers did nothing wrong and did their job? A man was killed.. maybe they should think twice before they use brute force when it's not really needed.. I know after the incident with my relative NONE of us ever went there again.. very uncalled for. Bunch of jerks!

This place needs to be closed. dont know who bouncers think they are. They have no training. All they know how to do is gang up on a single person. They should learn how to control a problem patron with out beating them up or killing them.

I was going to post about the place needing to be shut down and the bouncers acting like tough guys, causing most of the problems. But it seems like everyone beat me to it. The women that go there are trash too, but I guess I can't blame the bar for that. Still, SHUT IT DOWN.
