Alan Dershowitz Pees, Slips, Falls, Sues

Alan Dershowitz I usually don’t go to the bathroom during the fourth quarter, but I’m getting a little older, and the bladder is a little more active these days.

— Legal luminary Alan Dershowitz, commenting on the the lawsuit he recently filed against TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, for injuries he sustained during a slip and fall in the bathroom during a Celtics game. Dershowitz is being represented by Alex MacDonald, one of his former students.

(Dershowitz’s complaint alleges that “[t]he bathroom at this time — and plaintiff believes for at least 60 minutes before his entry into the restroom — had no paper towels to allow male patrons to dry their hands post washing of them.
