Lawyer Sues Ex-Fiancé for Jilting Her Four Days Before Planned Wedding

A suburban Chicago lawyer has sued her former fiancé, alleging he should reimburse her for nearly $100,000 she spent on a wedding that he called off just four days before the scheduled date.

Hoffman Estates, Ill., lawyer Dominique Buttitta claims breach of a promise to marry and intentional infliction of emotional distress, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Buttitta claims in the suit that her one-time fiancé, Vito Salerno, confessed that he hasn’t wanted to marry her for more than a year. She also alleges that, before the cancellation, he engaged in “flirtatious and amorous acts in public,” including lap dances at his bachelor party.
