Judge Rejects Buffalo Bills’ Request to Throw Out Cheerleader Lawsuit

By iSportconnect | July 2, 2014

A New York judge has rejected a request from the Buffalo Bills to dismiss a lawsuit brought by the team’s cheerleaders over pay and working conditions.

The NFL franchise has been accused by five former Buffalo Jills cheerleaders of paying less than the minimum wage and subjecting them to sexual harassment.

The Bills argued the cheerleaders are contracted with outside firms and that they should not be involved in the lawsuit.

Supreme Court Justice Timothy Drury’s rejected the appeal and ruled that there is a question over how much control the Bills had.
