Scott Sartiano Getting Sued

The owners of the New York HotSpot Butter have become involved in lawsuits over allegations that co-owner Scott Sartiano embezzled money from the club. The suits claim he took hundreds of thousands of dollars from the club to maintain his lavish lifestyle. Talk about a tax write off!

"Sartiano's embezzlement was in addition to a substantial salary; virtually unlimited free food and alcohol for Sartiano and his guests; and unauthorized payments by Butter for substantial personal expenses -- all of which continue to the present day," said the Manhattan Supreme Court suit, which also names co-owner Richie Akiva.
