A South Side Slopes man claims in a federal lawsuit filed Monday that Pittsburgh Power arena football team misuses unpaid interns.

Christopher Boyle, in a proposed class-action lawsuit for current and former unpaid interns, claims that Swann Inc. and owners Mathias R. and Lance T. Shaner violate state and federal labor laws by using unpaid interns to perform work that would otherwise be done by paid employees instead of providing the interns with educational experiences.

Boyle was an unpaid intern in the photography department from April 2011 to March 2012, where he helped plan marketing events and photographed all of the games, the lawsuit says. Company spokesman Rob Goodman had no immediate comment.
