Its hard out there for a Venetian millionaire. No sooner did the Cipriani boys get the all clear from their federal tax-evasion trial than a major sexual-harassment lawsuit came down upon their heads. Just in time for your weekend reading, Grub Street has acquired a copy of the legal documents; after the jump, allegations of systematic misogyny and insidious put-downs.

For your perusal, some choice bons mots from the lawsuit:

Women are only good for bed.

Actually, scratch that: Women are only good to take care of kids, for home, and for sex.

One captain would constantly leer at [a female employee] and tell her that he enjoyed Colombian girls.

One woman was crazy and lazy because her husband died three years ago and she is not getting any sex.

Female employees were forced to change in the male locker room.

Check, please!
