Lehman and Zeltinger were later convicted of petty misdemeanor battery and ordered to perform 16 hours of community service. Both also lost their Intel jobs because of the prank.
Intel Corp. spokeswoman told The Associated Press that the company is reviewing the lawsuit and declined to comment further.
Diego Esquibel, Lehman's attorney, called the episode "extremely unfortunate" and said Lehman and has not forgotten about the victim.
"He is truly sorry for any shame, sadness or pain the victim felt and his actions were never meant to cause any of those things," Esquibel said. "My client gave a heartfelt apology at sentencing and his feelings and statements have not changed."
No phone number was listed for Zeltinger.
