ATLANTA — A federal lawsuit has been filed against the owners of three metro Atlanta sports bars alleging the men forced five waitresses to have sex with them or lose their jobs.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed the suit against Alfonzo and Luis Nunez on Sept. 28. It claims they violated the waitresses' civil rights by committing "repeated acts of verbal and physical harassment which resulted in a hostile environment based on sex."

The two men run Calua Grill in Tucker, La Pantera Rosa restaurants in Duluth and Marietta.

They did not return a telephone call to their offices seeking comment Friday.

The incidents detailed in the suit allegedly happened over several months in 2007 and 2008. The waitresses resigned as a result.

I thought the article would say that the bars were owned by David Letterman. The old question "Who's on Letterman tonight?" now has a whole new meaning.

If the claims are proven to be true, I hope the men land long prison sentences and the waitresses wind up with the business.

Rolling Eyes - This is a lawsuit. It has nothing to do with prison sentences, but everything to do with money. It's called a civil case, not a criminal case.

First they are forced to have

First they are forced to have offensive sex over a 2 year period and the women do it because they are afraid of loosing their jobs, and then out of the blue the women decide the jobs aren't that important and then resign? Something stinks in Atlanta on both sides of this issue. Ladys it was quitting time for a person with morals on the first time that a demand was made.

i'm with disssman. in this

i'm with disssman. in this day and age no one has to submit to such degradation to keep any kind of job, especially a waitressing job. surely there were other restaurants in atlanta for them to go to for another waitressing position. c'mon now! sounds like someone is peeing on someone else's leg and trying to make them believe it's rain.
