Swinging Richards, Atlanta’s self-described “favorite gay male strip club,” has been ordered to swing more than $800,000 in the direction of five of its dancers and their lawyers after a federal jury found the club’s practice of making them work for tips only and to pay other club staffers was a willful violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The judgment, entered May 31 after a trial earlier in the month, comes after a similar suit ended last year with the club and its owner, C.B. Jones II, paying more than $1.3 million to settle FLSA claims filed by 37 dancers.
