Hilton Hotel Being Sued By Man Over .75 Newspaper CheapOair Staff August 2, 2011 general 1 Comment This post was most recently updated on September 25th, 2014 Paper Causes Stir Hilton Hotels Corporation is being sued by a California man, Rodney Harmon, 55, for charging him .75 cents for a USA Today newspaper that he allegedly did not request. According to the New York Times report, he deliberately ignored the newspaper at his hotel room doorstep for several days until he noticed tiny verbiage on a pouch that held his key card. The pouch indicated he would be charged for the newspaper unless he didn’t ask for one on purpose. The complaint was issued in federal court last week in San Francisco. Hilton has not issued a response to the suit.
