Judge Paves Way for Class-Action Suit Against Jay-Z, Nightclub

A New York City judge has paved the way for a class-action suit against rapper Jay-Z and his nightclub 40/40, the New York Post reports.

The suit was filed under the name Celeste Williams, a former employee who claims the club didn't pay overtime or minimum wage. A judge recently ordered the club's management to turn over the names of all employees over the past three years.

Maimon Kirschenbaum, Williams' lawyer, told the Post that "this is a good day for restaurant workers all over the city," and now plans to reach out to other club workers to see if they want to be a part of the suit.

Kirschenbaum said he did not know how much money each worker might be entitled to as he hadn't been able to access 40/40's complete records, but between 10 and 20 past and present bartenders, waiters and other workers are already on board.
