A group of dancers who have worked at a Massachusetts strip club say in a lawsuit the club violated state tip-sharing laws and forced them to pay fees to work.

The suit, filed this week in Salem Superior Court, is the second time that a group of dancers has gone to court against Peabody's Golden Banana club over those fees.

The Salem News reports a filing in the case indicates the estimated value of the lawsuit at $2 million.

The new suit — brought on behalf of three dancers — alleges that the practice of requiring "house fees," in violation of state law, continues.

A manager for the club, Robert Depesa, says he had not been served and declined comment.

The previous suit was settled in 2013 under undisclosed terms.
