News10NBC is hoping to get answers Friday about a lawsuit involving the Buffalo Jills.

We reported Thursday the Jills have suspended all activities until further notice. And earlier this week, we reported that some former cheerleaders are suing the Bills along with the Jills’ former managing company and the current one. Those cheerleaders claim they weren’t paid minimum wage for work on game-days and at appearances. They also say they were subjected to inappropriate comments and groping.

One of the women filing the lawsuit is Alyssa U. She said, “We paid for everything from tights to lipstick to gas money for appearances. I mean so much out of pocket and we really had no idea that it was going to be that.”

Another woman, Maria P. said, “And maybe they have seen us at charity events or sponsor events but they don't really know what we do on a daily basis and how much time is put in.”

Justin Granit is on his way to Buffalo for the Bills draft luncheon. While he's there, he's hoping to get answers from officials on the  lawsuit. He will have reports tonight on News10NBC at 5 and 6.
