BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Five former Buffalo Bills cheerleaders are suing the team, claiming they weren't paid for their time at football games or mandatory public appearances they say left them open to groping and sexual comments.

Tuesday's lawsuit is the third filed this year against a National Football League team by its cheerleaders. The Oakland Raiders and Cincinnati Bengals also have pending wage battles.

At a news conference with their attorney, Frank Dolce (DOHL-chay), two members of the Buffalo "Jills" squad said they were wrongly classified as independent contractors by Stejon Productions, which failed to pay them for hundreds of hours of work.

A Bills spokesman says the team doesn't comment on pending litigation. Stejon Productions didn't immediately respond to a request for a response.
