An evening's stay in a Ellenville, New York hotel may turn into a financial windfall for a Chicago-area woman. Leslie Fox, a 54-year-old booking agent, is suing the Nevele Hotel for a paltry $20 million dollars, which seems quite reasonable if you lived on another planet. Yes, bug bites are traumatic. Just ask my five-year-old daughter. She only sued me for use of the X-Box for one day.
