  • Lisa Lewis sets lawyers on Hamilton Cosmopolitan Club after court-ordered payment fails to materialise

    1653976949174.jpg?format=pjpg&optimize=medium.jpg

    There has been a new twist in the ongoing battle between Lisa Lewis and the Hamilton Cosmopolitan Club.

    She has won a harassment case against the management of the Hamilton Cosmopolitan Club and now Lisa Lewis has effectively claimed a stake in the club itself.

    Lewis, a high-profile adult film actress and former Hamilton mayoral candidate who lives close by the club, was awarded $10,000 in damages – as well as $39,404 in legal costs – which must be paid by the club as penance for causing “considerable stress to Ms Lewis over many months”.

    That stress was caused by a campaign of bullying against her, which included late night tooting, the erroneous issuing of trespass notices, and the erection of security fences that prevented her from driving in and out of her own driveway, which is only accessible through the club’s car park.

    The costs against the club were subsequently revised by Judge David Cameron to a total $57,213, after it was revealed his initial calculations were incorrect and had resulted in a sum that was too low.

    While the club are appealing the judgement – an appeal which will be heard in the High Court in Hamilton in July – the organisation is now well past the due date by which Lewis was meant to have been paid the damages and legal costs.

    Court documentation obtained by Stuff revealed Lewis’ legal representatives have now been instructed to enforce the judgement against the club, in the form of a “Charging Order on Land”, which has now been registered with and granted by the Hamilton District Court.



    A former Hamilton mayoral candidate, Lisa Lewis is these days operating as an entertainer on the OnlyFans online platform.
    That document “orders that the estate, right, title, or interest in the judgement debtor in the [Cosmopolitan Club] property ... a Fee Simple Estate of 9561 square metres more or less, stand charged with the payment of the amount of $57,213.37, being the amount for which the judgement creditor has obtained an order in this proceeding.”

    Another document obtained by Stuff is an advisory from Lewis’ legal counsel Fraser King to the club’s lawyers regarding the charging order on the property title, which notes they have also notified the club’s bank as an interested party.

    King also informs the club’s lawyers that “We have instructions to proceed to obtain a sale order in short course thereafter”.



    “Of course, if your client is to revisit its position and refrain from continued breaches of court order in paying the outstanding sum, then we will seek instructions to halt this enforcement and sale process.”

    Whether the club will accede to the court order or apply for a stay of proceedings is unknown. Also unknown is the organisation’s current financial situation.

    Details of the club’s statements for the 2021-22 financial year – which were posted on its website on Tuesday – reveals it has total assets of $3.6 million.

    An auditor’s report on the club’s finances dated May 23. 2022 notes a net surplus of $113,323, up from a $36,584 surplus the previous year.

    However, the auditor also notes the club’s current liabilities exceeded its total assets by $202,143.

    This “casts significant doubt about the [club’s] ability to continue as a going concern”, the auditor wrote.

    The club had been making moves to address the situation and the figure had improved from the previous year’s excess of $244,659, the auditor noted.

    In his judgement issued earlier this year, Judge Cameron slated the club’s management and patrons for their “insidious” treatment of Lewis, who successfully brought a civil case against their “nuisance” behaviour.

    As the court judgment reveals, soon after Lewis brought the action the club counterclaimed for a breach of trespass against her – a move that ultimately was dismissed by the judge.

    Lewis began renting the house in 2013 and relations between her and the club were, at first, cordial. However, in 2017 a new manager, Ian Morgan, was appointed – and things quickly began to sour.

    As the court judgment notes, Morgan and Lewis were already known to each other. She had rented a room from him when he owned the Sails Motel, a tenancy that ended when he told her to leave.

    “I am satisfied from the evidence I have heard ... there was a mutual dislike between those two individuals,” the judge wrote.
