Buffalo Wild Wings settled a federal lawsuit brought by two former employees at the Forest Park location.

Those workers had said the were the victims of racial discrimination.  

FOX19 Investigates reported the lawsuit in July of last year.

Two African American women claimed they were repeatedly subjected to racist jokes, remarks and behavior while working at the Forest Park franchise of the popular restaurant chain.

The women, who worked at the Forest Park Buffalo Wild Wings from 2006 until they were fired in 2013 said they loved their jobs until there was a management change in 2012.

Both said they'd reported the alleged racist behavior to Buffalo Wild Wings corporate representatives.

The lawsuit has asked for damages of more than $75,000. The terms of the settlement, which was filed earlier this month, have not been disclosed.
