NYC: Penthouse Dancers Sue

(Oct. 27, 2010; NYC)

Judge says women’s suit over wages can proceed as class action

Nine Penthouse club dancers are officially a class act now that a judge has ruled their lawsuit can be expanded.

The women are suing the club in federal court, claiming they were cheated out of tips and wages.

A federal judge ruled Wednesday that the suit can proceed as a class action, meaning any dancer who worked at Penthouse in the last three years can join it.

“It’s a huge victory for the workers here,” said lawyer Justin Swartz, of Outten & Golden, which filed the suit on behalf of the dancers.
