Buffalo Jills Suspend Activities



Orchard Park, NY (WBEN) Two days after a lawsuit was filed against the Jills, the director of the Bills' cheerleading squad says she's suspending all activities.

Stephanie Mateczun is the manager of the Buffalo Jills and president of Stejon Productions Corp. She wouldn't explain the suspension, but two days earlier five former cheerleaders sued the company and NFL team.
  
Five former Jills filed suit this week saying the team exploited them by failing to pay the minimum wage.

The cheerleaders say they had to work hundreds of hours for free at games and were subjected to groping and sexual comments at mandatory public appearances. One cheerleader said they had to take a "jiggle test" so their boss could assess their physiques.
  
The cheerleaders seek unspecified back pay and legal fees.
