CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The owners of Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill at the Banks were aware they would default on their lease but stayed open to benefit from the All-Star Game, a class action lawsuit alleges.
A former employee claims workers were only notified of the closure on July 16 - the day the restaurant closed down. Final checks were issued but bounced.
"Instead of informing their employees of the impending closure, on July 16, 2015, after obtaining significant revenues from All-Star Week, Employer Defendants closed the doors of the Cincinnati Toby Keith's restaurant and, upon information and belief, retained the revenues from All-Star Week," the lawsuit reads.
The plaintiff is suing for back wages and undisclosed monetary wages.
