Ex-Scores Owner Sued

NY- The former owner of Scores tried to muscle his way back into control of the strip club by sending hammer-wielding thugs to beat and threaten the skin joint’s current bosses, according to a $100 million lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.

The suit accuses former owner Irving Bilzinsky and former head bouncer Nerim (Big John) Gjonbalaj of waging “a program of violence and intimidation” to push the new owners out of control of the Scores clubs.

The suit charges the duo with ordering death threats and beatings of new owners Richard Goldring and Elliot Osher. The plaintiffs say they were told they could keep a Miami Scores, but not the two New York clubs, at W. 28th St. and E. 60th St.

“In the end, what it comes down to is it is just a business dispute,” said attorney Donald David, who represents Goldring and Osher.

Bilzinsky and Gjonbalaj could not be reached for comment.

Goldring and Osher, who already owned Scores’ licensing, took over the clubs in 2003, keeping Bilzinsky on as a consultant.

The violence began in February, according to the suit, when Harvey Osher, Elliot’s brother, was beaten in Manhattan by two former Scores employees. On April 5, Elliot, Harvey, and another brother, William Osher, were allegedly attacked in Brooklyn by 12 men wielding clubs and hammers.

The assault left Elliot with a broken shoulder, Harvey with broken ribs, and William knocked to the ground, the suit says. Bilzinsky paid the attackers as much as $50,000, the lawsuit charges. The suit accuses the defendants of racketeering, breach of contract and assault.
