Another NBC host is looking for a late-night lawyer.

Jimmy Fallon is being sued by his former stage manager, Paul Tarascio, who claims that Fallon showed “gender bias” and favoritism toward women in the workplace, according to TMZ. The suit stems from Tarascio’s demotion, after which he was fired and replaced by a “less qualified woman” who didn’t know how to do the job.

NBC is also being sued for gender bias from the incident.

Tarascio had his run with the “Late Night” show end in 2010. He alleges that “other male staffers, such as audio technicians and a Prop-Master were also replaced by women at Jimmy’s request.”

Earlier today, reports broke that fellow NBC late-night host Jay Leno is also being sued for a crack about Mitt Romney using the the Golden Temple in Amritsar, India as a vacation home. Leno is now being sued for promoting “hatred” toward the Sikh religion with the joke.
