Wisconsin city sues to recoup pub crawl costs

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- The city of Oshkosh is suing a man it says organized a costly pub crawl without a permit.

Oshkosh Northwestern Media reports (http://oshko.sh/1w2PkOn ) the city filed a small claims lawsuit against Joseph Kubiak for money it spent on police and other services during the Oshkosh Pub Crawl in April. The city is seeking about $3,800 for outstanding costs and $1,000 for violating the city's special events rules.

Kubiak tells the Northwestern he will dispute the claim because he didn't organize this year's pub crawl. He says he sold pub crawl T-shirts "with no strings attached." Kubiak has organized and obtained permits for past pub crawls.

Kubiak has already paid the city $2,000 of a $5,800 bill for the event. He has until July 30 to respond to the lawsuit.
