Rush Alex Sues Hotel Over Altercation



Alex of Rush sues the Ritz-Carlton, its security director and three sheriff's deputies stemming from a New Year's Eve 2003 altercation at Naples Hotel

Alex Zivojinovich of the band Rush, along with son Justin Zivojinovich and daughter-in-law Michelle, filed lawsuit against the Ritz-Carlton, its security director and three sheriff's deputies Thursday in U.S. District Court. The three of them try seeking an unspecified amount of monetary damages for injuries, pain and suffering, mental anguish and the costs of their defense in criminal cases.

As for the beginning of the case, it was all stemming from a New Year's Eve 2003 altercation at the Naples hotel when Justin and his companions agitated hotel security as they got up on a platform when the house band was taking a break at a party to ring in 2004. Soon thereafter, as mentioned in the lawsuit, deputies who responded to a call by hotel security "applied illegal and unjustified force, and such force was excessive," causing Justin "severe discomfort and pain."

Shortly, the security also illegally arrested Michelle Zivojinovich as she complained about the force used to subdue her husband. As for their side, deputies claimed Alex Zivojinovich pushed a female deputy down a stairwell and spit in another deputy's face when he tried to intervene.
