U.S. District Judge William F. Kuntz said in his ruling that a trial wasn’t necessary since the evidence was so blatant and that he was handing over the case to a magistrate who will assess damages.
The lawsuit was filed against the Port restaurant owner Ayhan Hassan and manager Dario Gomez in 2011 by Ashley, Gabrielle and Lauren D’Annunzio, who worked as hostesses at the restaurant between 2005 to 2008 and claimed during this time they were harassed by male employees physically and verbally.
