HOUSTON – The first ex-Houston Texans Cheerleader to sue the team for underpayment has reportedly decided to let her case go into arbitration.

According to recent Houston federal court records, P.G.G. submitted an agreed stipulation of dismissal in favor of arbitration into her labor lawsuit on July 17.

The move essentially disposes the suit nearly two months after it was filed.

P.G.G. alleged that she was paid for some of the time she spent working as a Texans Cheerleader, but was consistently not compensated for activities including, but not limited to being required to spend multiple hours a week in the gym, being required to respond promptly to Tweets and e-mails, and signing thousands of team calendars.

Her suit additionally claimed that squad manager Alto Gary mistreated the plaintiff and other cheerleaders on several occasions.

Several more former Texans Cheerleaders pursued legal action on similar allegations with prominent women’s rights attorney Gloria M. Allred as their head counsel. One of the complainants, Angelina Rosa, accused Gary and her staff of forcing her to wear duct tape.

The group's lawsuit was also dismissed in favor of arbitration.
