Judge says Penthouse Club Dancers suit over wages can proceed as class action

Back story:

New York City – from – 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.

“They filed this case for their co-workers to recover their lost wages.”

The suit was first filed by dancer Leslie Liwanag [pictured], who also claimed that the Manhattan adult entertainment club made dancers buy their own costumes, sliced tips, and cheated them out of overtime.

In her ruling, Federal District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald ruled some of Penthouse’s arguments against putting the suit into class action status “borders on specious.”
