Lawsuits

johnnyutahs.jpgA group of former employees of Johnny Utah's, a Midtown bar that caters to a very male crowd, have filed a class action lawsuit against the business for sexual harassment. The servers (two of whom are actually male) claim that, among other things, female employees were made to "encourage" customers by taking off their shirts, kiss each other, and play in kiddy pools. They also could be fired for refusing to work at private parties, where they were often groped. [NYP]
