    The lawsuit says the workers did not receive any of the 20 percent service charges.

    Waiters who serve the higher-priced seats at Yankee Stadium claim in a lawsuit that their tips are being withheld.

    The suit names Volume Services America, which ran food services in the old stadium, and Legends Hospitality, which runs them in the new stadium. It was filed in Manhattan federal court on Monday.

    The plaintiffs seek unpaid wages and other damages.

    Menus in the seats' cup holders say "a 20 percent service charge will be added to the listed prices. Additional gratuity is at your discretion."
