From the NYDailyNews:
ANOTHER lawsuit filed by an employee of the Brownstone Catering Hall in Paterson NJ!
Lanise Jackson, who is suing Albert Manzo and his younger brother Tommy, said they routinely called her and other workers “Spic bitches” and hurled other ethnic epithets while she worked for them at The Brownstone House in Paterson, N.J.
“Are you blind?” an angry Tommy Manzo allegedly yelled at her, Jackson claimed in court papers. “What are you, Chinese? Open your eyes.”
Jackson, 36, of Paterson, said she was “constructively terminated as she could no longer endure the racial, sexual, ethnic and country of origin epithets hurled at her hourly.”
Jackson described the catering hall, which is often featured on the RHONJ… as a “filthy,” “unhygienic,” and “roach infested.” Jackson said that she continued working in these conditions because she had no where else to work… and she had to support her family.
Jackson says in the lawsuit that she worked at the Brownstone twice….one from October 2011 to April 2012 and another from September to November of 2013.
FEBUS and all sued by Jackson (BigAl and Tommy) are denying all allegations put forth by this former employee… and are considering a countersuit:
“I’ve never spoken to any employee in that manner,” he said. “This is the most insane thing I’ve ever dealt with. Now I got The Daily News calling me about this, I’m seriously thinking about launching a countersuit. She is defaming me.”
Albert Manzo said he is convinced Jackson’s lawsuit is “a byproduct of the fame of the show.”
NOTE: The suit was filed December 10, 2013.
A similar lawsuit was filed in 2011 by Sandy Fernandez… head waiter Fernandez sued for five years back pay. The case was accidentally closed in July 2013 and order reopened. The Fernandez case is waiting for reassignment… it is ongoing. DETAILS at SH June 2011…
BigAl’s short fuse…
