Robert Tucker attended a live Andy Dick performance at Trees in Deep Ellum back in December.

About two weeks ago, Tucker filed a lawsuit against the alleged comedian and the nightclub because of something he accused Dick of holding against him.

Tucker claims in the suit that Dick rubbed his namesake against Tucker’s face during the course of the alleged performance. Tucker didn't care for it and filed a lawsuit because of "offensive physical contact," "intentional infliction of emotional distress," and "defamation by conduct."

Yet Tucker, in a manner of speaking, defamed himself by paying good money to see a performance by Andy Dick, who seems to be about one misfired synapse away from his own personal Chernobyl, bless his heart.

Tucker included Trees in the lawsuit because the club management should have been aware of Dick’s “long history of assaulting patrons."

Robert, dude, a little personal responsibility here, please. Have you not been paying attention to Dick’s shenanigans ever since “NewsRadio” went off the air?

I’m thinking this lawsuit doesn’t have a third leg to stand on.
