David Mann, a 54-year-old dancer for Naughty Bodies in Batavia, is suing the company, claiming it stopped giving him work after he complained that customers were sexually harassing him.
Mann started working for the company in December 2007. He says that twice when he was performing in private homes, male customers asked him to have sex. Mann refused.
He says when he left a message asking the company how he should deal with those situations, no one called him back and he stopped receiving assignments.
Mann is suing the company for $9,000 plus expenses. Naughty Bodies sought a dismissal, arguing that its entertainers are independent contractors, but the judge found enough evidence of naughty business to send the case to a jury.
