BALTIMORE (AP) - A lawyer representing three former employees of celebrity chef Bryan Voltaggio says they’re settling their federal lawsuit alleging wage violations.

Baltimore attorney Benjamin Davis declined to discuss terms of the settlement revealed in a U.S. District Court document Thursday.

Voltaggio’s lawyer didn’t immediately respond to a telephone message and email from The Associated Press.

The former line cooks filed the lawsuit in September, contending Voltaggio and business partner Hilda Staples had not paid them for working overtime at the Volt restaurant in Frederick. They said they were required to arrive early but not allowed to clock in until their scheduled start times.

The defendants maintained the workers were paid what they were owed.

Voltaggio was a finalist in the sixth season of the Bravo TV show “Top Chef” in 2009.
