    A Delaware County man was ordered to stand trial on charges he killed his wife. He says it was a failed suicide pact.

    Two waitresses are suing the Second Avenue bar where they worked, alleging their managers forced them to get weighed regularly, tracked their information in a spreadsheet and made constant jokes at their expense.

    Kristen McRedmond and Alexandria Lipton filed a $15 million harassment lawsuit against the Sutton Place Restaurant.

    A state appeals court ruled it could proceed.

    The women allege they were fired from their jobs shortly after complaining about the forcible weigh-ins.

    In the lawsuit, McRedmond alleged her boss constantly subjected her to vulgar sexual comments, comments about her weight and inappropriate touching.

    A lawyer for the bar told The New York Post his clients were disappointed the state appeals court allowed the lawsuit to proceed, but "look forward to vindicating ourselves at trial."
