Lawsuit filed by injured patron of Drynk nightclub in Manchester settles for $500,000

MANCHESTER — A lawsuit involving the nightclub Drynk has settled for $500,000, after a patron sued saying he'd received severe injuries in a confrontation with the club's security in 2013.

According to the Union Leader, the attorney representing Marc Shields, 23, said the college student suffered a traumatic brain injury and required multiple surgeries after getting into a fight with a bouncer who had ordered him and a friend to leave the club on Old Granite St.

Shield and his attorney filed suit seeking $1 million in damages. The case went to a mediator and was settled last month. Shields was a student at Southern New Hampshire University at the time of the incident.

Drynk is no longer in business, former owner Thomas Svoleantopoulos told the newspaper on Friday.

No criminal charges were filed regarding the incident.
