An Atlantic City casino can control how much weight its cocktail servers gain.

A state judge said the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa's rules are reasonable.

Twenty-two servers, known as "Borgata Babes," objected to the policy. They said the casino only attempted to enforce it on female servers.

The Press of Atlantic City reported Wednesday that the judge found the rule would be considered sexist if the policy targeted female servers only or punished a trait in one sex over another. Judge Nelson Johnson found neither was evident in the case in his July 18 ruling.
