NBA Legend Bill Bridges Steamed Over Spa Injuries
Bill -- who won a championship ring with the Golden State Warriors in 1975 -- filed the lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming he visited the steam room last year at the Le Merigot Spa in the Marriott Santa Monica ... and upon entering, a cloud of steam "engulfed Mr. Bridges' face."
As a result, the 72-year-old Bridges claims he "suffered severe burns to his face and to his eyes, skin discoloration, and permanent scarring."
According to the lawsuit, Bridges has sought expensive treatments from both a dermatologist and ophthalmologist -- and has since been unable to see clearly, drive, work, and play golf.
Bridges claims he "also suffers from psychological trauma, and has been unable to go to [another] steam room."
He's suing for unspecified damages, totaling at least $250,000. Calls to the Marriott have not been returned. more on this story
