Buffalo Bills cheerleaders halt season after suit

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills cheerleaders will be making no appearances this year, a decision that comes days after a lawsuit over pay and working conditions.

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.

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.
