Judge: AC casino can control waitress weight gain

An Atlantic City casino can control how much weight that its cocktail servers gain.

A state judge says the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s rules are reasonable.

Twenty-two servers, known as “Borgata Babes,” objected to the policy. They said the casino only attempted to enforce it on female servers.

The Press of Atlantic City reports the judge found the rule would be considered sexist if the policy targeted female servers only or punished a trait in one sex over another.

The judge found neither was evident in the case.
