BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) – The David vs. Goliath lawsuit that pits an employee at the Woodfield Country Club restaurant against the massive Boca Raton establishment is now scheduled for October. There is no indication that the Woodfield Country Club is ready to settle the complaint.

At issue: Whether or not Woodfield is responsible for damage to the car of Joseph Stolarz who claims he was ordered to deliver food to the owners – of the Woodfield Country Club restaurant – at a time when the community was closed due to the bad weather. The engine of his car was flooded.

As BocaNewsNow.com first reported on June 26: “Complainant Joseph Stolarz says his supervisors’ request to deliver food during what the community calls a ‘red alert,’ or a time where no one is supposed to be on the road in Woodfield, cost him $5,747.87 His insurance company, according to the lawsuit, refused to pay the claim because his personal car was being used to deliver food while that he worked for the Woodfield Country Club.

Woodfield — where a $20,000 membership requires a $50,000 initiation fee and a capital contribution of $45,000 — refuses to pay less than $6,000 to fix the car of his employee who apparently received the order to drive during lockdown. Ironically, the complaint suggests he had to deliver food during the torrential downpours because country club residents didn’t want to risk hurting themselves – or damaging their own cars – by being in the storm.

The trial, originally scheduled for August, has just been moved to October. Stolarz represents himself. The Woodfield Country Club of Boca Raton is represented by attorney Keith Hammond of the Hammond Law Center in Orlando.
