Follow-up: San Antonio strippers settle wage lawsuit against club

A San Antonio strip club that lost a trial that resulted in a $250,000 judgment for two ex-strippers has agreed to settle a separate lawsuit involving other dancers.

Terms of the deal were kept confidential, but the settlement comes three months after U.S. Magistrate Judge Henry Bemporad ruled that half of the 45 strippers that sought to join the class-action suit against Tiffany's Cabaret can't be part of the court action because they signed arbitration agreements.

The judge allowed the rest to remain in the lawsuit, and the decision kept alive claims that Tiffany’s shorted other dancers of minimum wage and overtime pay.

Tiffany’s made employees sign the arbitration agreements shortly after it was previously sued by two dancers in another case, court records show. The strategy appears to have worked, as Tiffany’s lawyers convinced Bemporad that 22 dancers who signed the agreements can’t pursue wage claims in court.
