Maine woman sues restaurant over job interview

An Orono, Maine woman has sued a Brewer restaurant owner, alleging that he called her a Nazi and did not hire her because of her German and Jewish heritage. Elizabeth Eisenstadt says in the suit that during a May 2011 interview for a job as a server at Schooner’s Seafood & Steakhouse, owner Michael Kessock asked her about her last name and called her a Nazi when she said it was German. Eisenstadt is a member of a Bangor synagogue. She is seeking unspecified damages, reinstatement, back pay, and attorney’s fees. Kessock’s lawyer tells the Bangor Daily News the allegations are ‘‘untrue and unfair,’’ pointing out that Kessock is part German and Austrian. Kessock says Eisenstadt withdrew her name from the applicant pool. (AP)
