Can a bowling alley charge a league for 100 bowlers when they only have 96. The new manager is charging leagues this way. If a league has 5 members per team and a few may only have 4, the manager still charges each for 5 even though no one is bowling in the 5th spot. Can he do this? If not, how can we prove to him that he can't. Is there anything written anywhere about this?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Among your State's Criminal Code, Family Law Code, Health & Safety Code, there is the Bowling Code of Ethics, which states:
"Section 34-23-19 Bowling Code of Ethics - Breach of the Public Trust.
"A proprietor of a bowling alley shall not charge for 100 bowlers within a league when there is less than 100 bowlers in such league at the time of sign-up. This code section is mandatory, and shall be punishable by 5 years in prison, $10,000.00 fine, or both. A party aggreived by this section shall not be estopped from filing their own "Private Attorney General" lawsuit for all damages, actual and consequential."
There you go.
