On September 17, 2013, Outten & Golden LLP and Fitapelli & Schaffer LLP filed a class action lawsuit against New York Dolls Gentlemen’s Club a/k/a/ 59 Murray Enterprises Inc., Private Eyes Gentlemen’s Club a/k/a AAM Holding Corp., Three B’s Hospitality Group a/k/a XYZ Corp., and its owners Barry Lipsitz and Barry Lipsitz, Jr. on behalf of entertainers (dancers) who have worked at the club between September 17, 2007 and the present.
The lawsuit alleges that Defendants regularly deprived entertainers of their rights under federal and New York State wage and hour laws, including their right to be paid proper minimum wages, their right to be paid proper overtime compensation, their right to keep customer gratuities they earn, their right to be reimbursed for uniform expenses, and their right to work without paying “house fees.”
The lawsuit seeks to recover on behalf of entertainers all of the wages they have earned, all of their confiscated tips, and all of the fees they were forced to pay, as federal and state law require.
The parties have amicably resolved this matter. For more information, please check the case’s docket, Flynn v. New York Dolls Gentlemen’s Club, No. 13-cv-6530 (RLE), in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York.
