Jocks & Jills, Atlanta’s popular sports bar, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy following a recent $2 million verdict for sexual and racial harassment.
Tracey Tomczyk, formerly the company’s highest-ranking female manager, claimed company Chairman Joseph Rollins began harassing her after she started dating a black man. Rollins allegedly taunted her and made crude comments about her relationship. When she complained, she was fired.
Jocks & Jills has asked for a stay during appeal, claiming the payout would impair operations, but Tomczyk is pursuing collection.
