Tsk, Tsk NYC restaurants sued over tipping practice

Several New York City restaurants including Applebee’s, Olive Garden and Red Lobster, are being named in a lawsuit over alleged deceptive billing practices, "CBS This Morning" reports.

The network posted images of an Olive Garden check with a line for an “automatic gratuity” of 18 percent added to the price of a meal, as well as a place to add an additional tip, regardless of the number of diners. An Applebee's check added a 17 percent automatic gratuity, saying it was "payable at guest's discretion."
