Three sisters who were subjected to sexual harassment at Ayhan’s Fish Kebab Restaurant on Long Island are entitled to damages, according to a decision by New York federal court judge William F. Kuntz.  The lawsuit against Ayhan’s was brought by three hostesses, all sisters, who were subjected to “appalling sexual abuse” at the restaurant.

Judge Kuntz found that there were numerous incidents of sex harassment at the restaurant, including male employees making lewd remarks to the women and touching their arms, legs and buttocks.  In the most flagrant example of harassment, one of the sisters was grabbed in a bear hug in July 2008 by a cook who groped her.  The cook halted the attack when a busboy came down to the basement.  In October 2008, the cook was convicted of felony attempted sexual abuse, served 4 months in jail and was deported.
