Man's suit against Sandusky Library falls flat

Tom Jackson • Apr 7, 2012 at 8:00 AM

The U.S. Supreme Court has written the final chapter in a long-running legal saga involving the Sandusky Library and an unhappy patron. Spoiler alert: the library wins.

The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear the case filed by James Pietrangelo II, effectively ending his lawsuit.

Pietrangelo's bad day at the library came on Oct. 28, 2009, when he confronted library staff about the behavior of other patrons, whom he accused of being too noisy.

Library staff eventually asked Pietrangelo to leave, and police escorted him from the premises.

He sued the library in federal court, alleging “wrongful ejectment, conversion, defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false arrest and breach of contract.”
