WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. — Adult production company Ducati Productions has filed a lawsuit against the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas Township Justice Court. The suit seeks damages from an unauthorized person's entry into company owner Kevin Ducati's room on Jan. 13 which allowed for the theft of "thousands of dollars" from the room.

"I was at the [AVN] awards show. It got started about 10 o'clock, and I got back at 2 in the morning," Ducati told XBIZ. "[The money] was in the safe, and the safe door was wide open when I came in. When I first got in the room, the safe was locked and security was able to open it in five seconds with a gadget they had."

The suit claims that Venetian staff allowed unauthorized entry to Ducati’s suite by an unauthorized person who was not a registered guest of the hotel, within hours of a security threat being reported and all access to the suite disabled — even to Ducati.

After arriving back at the hotel, Ducati said he met with hotel security to re-gain access to the suite and found the door propped open. Several items and a large amount of cash were missing from the room. After further investigation, Ducati said that someone had presented a bent key card at the front desk, claiming it was their room and couldn’t get in and was allowed entry by hotel staff.

“I was the only registered guest of the suite. No one should have ever been allowed entry to my room at any time including maid service which was specifically denied unless I was in the room," Ducati said in a statement. "The Venetian made no denial that they allowed unauthorized entry to my suite even after I had reported a security threat, yet they were completely and utterly uncooperative in resolving anything. They made it very clear they were not going to do anything about it and offered no restitution of any kind. They could have easily comped my stay but refused to do anything."

Ducati told XBIZ that the intrusion into his room was "fully recorded ... by a fluke" but declined to go into detail.

A request for comment from the Venetian Hotel's public relations department was unanswered by press time.
