Quote of the Day: Waitresses Head to Court To Fight Weight Harassment

"They (the defendants) acted like pigs. They treated these women like chattel, and they're going to face the jury now."

-Rosemarie Arnold, a lawyer for a group of former waitresses who are moving forward with a case against a NYC restaurant that made its female servers stand on scales and harassed them about their weight. The lawsuit has been tied up in the courts for over five years until this week, when a judge ruled that it could proceed to a jury trial. [WSJ]
