Marvin Mendoza filed a federal lawsuit on November 10, 2014 against Off the Hook Bar and Grill, a seafood restaurant with locations in Stratford and Westbrook, Connecticut. For nearly a year, the restaurants’ owner Andrew Testo stole Mr. Mendoza’s wages, shouted insults and profanities at him, and threatened him with knives. Mr. Mendoza and members of the workers’ rights organization Unidad Latina en Acción (ULA) held a protest at Off the Hook in Stratford and attempted to hand-deliver the lawsuit to Mr. Testo.
