teri woodsTeri Woods Files Billion Dollar Lawsuit

October 2009



The bestselling, pioneer author and publisher, Teri Woods, has filed a $1 billion class-action lawsuit against the popular New York City nightclub, Greenhouse, after her and 175 invited guests were turned away, when they tried to enter the star studded release celebration for her new book Alibi. Most of the guests who were turned away, were black. According to Woods, her white guests were allowed to enter.

"They should have just put up a sign that said, 'No Coloreds Allowed,'" said Kashan Robinson, a plaintiff and sister of rapper Queen Pen. "When I asked the doorman what was the problem, he just looked past us like we didn't exist."

Barry Mullineaux, owner of Greenhouse, said that Woods allegations are, “all pretty much bogus.”

Woods ended her night—which should have been a huge celebration of her new book—in tears after she found out that her entire guestlist of black people were being barred from entering the club.

Text messages showing Mullineaux was turning people away based on looks, read: “I couldn’t let in 300lb girls … Everybody looking at me like this ur people Barry???”

"I was clearly violated that night, and so were so many other people … all I know is it had something to do with 'your people' and 'fat,' Woods said. "They left all of my friends and family standing outside, I had really serious people out there: lawyers, doctors and people in the entertainment industry.”

Nightclubs have been known to deny people based on dress code but not based on skin color. Federal authorities have taken down clubs located in Wisconsin and Virginia that tried to keep people of color from entering.

alibi teri woodsTeri Woods new book, Alibi, is set in Philadelphia in 1986, this blistering first in a new urban noir series from bestseller Woods (True to the Game) introduces 22-year-old Daisy Fothergill, a naïve African-American stripper. Daisy accepts $2,000 from an organized crime rep to provide an alibi for Bernard Nard Guess after he shoots two thieves to death as well as a buddy by accident in a North Philly drug house.

An innocent witness to the bloodbath identifies Nard to the police, but pays a fatal price. When Daisy arrives home to tell her mother, Abigail, of her windfall and finds Abigail dead of natural causes, she discovers the $2,000 barely covers funeral costs. Her life takes an even nastier turn once Daisy starts dating Reggie Carter, a fast-talker who soon deserts her. Later, a pregnant Daisy flees to Murfreesboro, Tenn., to seek refuge with her aunt, but eventually she must return to Philly for a day of reckoning.
