A man who tried to sue a prostitute for a refund has lost his case in the High Court.

The man, who's known as Mr N, hired a private investigator to track the sex worker down after he felt he hadn't had his money's worth, when his session with the woman ended prematurely.

Today's Sunday Star Times reports Mr N claimed compensation and damages, because the woman breached a contractual agreement.

The High Court has rejected his claim, and he's ended up with both legal bills.


Justice Woodhouse described the man's case as a "sinister use of the courts processes."
