Gloria Allred's Casino Case -- The Angry Waitresses

5/31/2011 11:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The waitresses who claim an Atlantic City casino fired them for being too old went public today -- blasting the place during a news conference ... in which Gloria Allred literally served up her lawsuit on a silver platter.

Gloria put the legal docs on the silver plate, mocking one of the casino's sexy new "Let us serve you!" advertisements -- declaring, "We will be serving YOU today. Not with a cocktail, but with a lawsuit."

As we previously reported, Gloria represents 9 female cocktail servers -- aged between 40 and 66 -- who claim Resorts Casino in Atlantic City fired them to make room for sexier, younger waitresses.

The women are suing for unlawful sex, age, and race discrimination -- demanding back pay, lost wages, and damages for pain and suffering.

This crone will take ANY case as long as it gets her face time for the cameras. Whatsa' matter Gloria...no ambulances to chase today?? You are a complete disgrace to the legal profession...As far as the "old" waitresses go...whatever, I've had some fat, homely male waiters serve me on occasion. They're serving food, not f***s. Get over it.

You know in my early 20's I was a waitress in a famous resort city in Southern Calif. It brought me in great pay, but I knew this was not something I could do all of my life nor did I want to I went to school paid for it and had techincal 9-5 job. I am now semi retired, in my late 50's and unfortunately there are some jobs that are for the young. It is just the way it is, and I cannot imagine even wanting to have served drinks all of my life into my 50's. Why would anyone want to?? There are many jobs that the older person is not hired men and woman alike. One must accept it. Make the money when you are young and save it so you can retire and not worry about it. that is what i say.

If they wanted sexy young waitresses they
shouldn't have hired them in the first place.
I think they have a open and shut case.

From Mike P..
Gloria Alred is an utter joke, and a disgrace to the law profession, (and that's a hard honor to achieve)
She needs to just go away!

I agree, maybe she should send these wowen to her own plastic surgeon..
As she well knows , just like in her own profession as a fame whoring lawyer, looks count ..

I dont think most people even look much at the waitress, at the casino's I have been too , other than to take their drink from them... give them a tip and go on playing. I dont understand why these woman cant keep their jobs...everyone needs to be working now-a-days. Stop being so mean and nasty to older gals, it wont be long and you will be there yourselves.

You can't hang on forever. Life is a journey and not a destination. When you get old, accept it and move on to something more appropriate for your age. The entire world gets this, but for some reason, the people in the USA do not.....

Sorry ladies,

I worked my way through college in a local restaurant/pub. It sucked! Hard to imagine this being a lifetime career goal for anyone. No retirement, no pension.......

That said, I worked with some fabulous older ladies. They even gave me a surprise graduation party.

Vegas, unless one is retired, is not a kind place for women in their 50's.
