Unlike the attorney client privilege, to my knowledge, there does not exist a customer- florist privilege absent some contractual agreement. Leroy Greer, a man going through a divorce in
Apparently, Leroy Greer was going through a divorce at the time he sent the flowers. In his federal lawsuit, he claims that he bought flowers through 1-800-Flowers for his girlfriend. He further claims that he requested the company to keep his purchase private.
The receipt confirmed that Greer had sent another woman a dozen long-stemmed red roses. The note read, "Just wanted to say that I love you and you mean the world to me!" according to the complaint. At the time Greer claims he was going through an amicable divorce. (Learning of the girl friend apparently ended the amicability.) Greer claims that his wife became more demanding in the divorce settlement negotiations. Kennitra Foote represents Mr. Greer.
Greer seeks $1 million for breach of contract and deceptive trade practices.
Does Greer have a beef or is he just busted?
