Judge rules strippers are due their tips

The strippers contend they were stripped on their tips.

Now, a judge agrees.

A Massachusetts judge has ruled about 70 exotic dancers are due thousands of dollars from a club called King Arthur's Lounge in the Boston area.

The strippers had sued, claiming they were owed wages and tips.

The club had classified them as "independent contractors," charging the dancers $35 per night to perform and keeping a-third of their take for private dances.

But a lawyer for the club tells The Boston Globe the dancers made hundreds of dollars per shift.
