Manhattan Federal Judge Loretta Preska said current and past servers, bartenders and others who have worked at the venue could be eligible for a settlement from a suit certified as class action yesterday.

Preska added the workers' lawyers have made a "minimal" showing that the 40/40 owners have violated federal wage and labor laws.
