Case: Lu v. Christensen, Dist. Court, D. New Mexico 2014


In August or September 2012, SET began surveillance of Lu and her employees for indicators that Asian Massage was operating as a brothel. . . . Posing as customers, SET also visited Asian Massage and attempted to obtain sexual favors such as “happy endings”[1] during their massages. . . .Neither Lu nor her employees provided any of the SET officers with a happy ending during the investigations. . . . However, McCall alleged that one of the masseuses made a gesture during a massage meaning that she wanted to give a happy ending. . . . Further, McCall and Sanchez found that one of Lu’s employees went by the name of Tina, which was a name identified on an erotic massage website as one of the masseuses at “Asian Massage.” . . . In a later massage on October 10, 2012, Sanchez communicated with the masseuse to perform a “hand job,” and although the masseuse was “apparently enticed,” Sanchez left the massage parlor before this “happy ending” could occur. . . . While at Asian Massage, the officers also did not see a massage license posted in the building.
. . .
[1] According to Wiktionary, a “happy ending” is “[a] handjob, especially one after a massage.” Happy ending, WIKTIONARY (Dec. 9, 2013, 9:52 AM), http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/happy_ending. For alternate definitions, see also Happy ending, URBAN DICTIONARY (Jan. 25, 2003), http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=happy%20ending.

What happened: Police handed qi on some, but not all, of plaintiff’s civil claims against them.
