Public Accessibility Laws
All persons within the jurisdiction of the state of Missouri are free and equal and shall be entitled to the full and equal use and enjoyment within the state of any place of public accommodation, as hereinafter defined, without discrimination or segregation because of disability.
Courts who have determined the defendant to be responsible for violating anti-discrimination laws may award to the plaintiff actual and punitive damages and may award court costs and reasonable attorney fees to the prevailing party, other than a state agency or commission or a local commission. A prevailing respondent may be awarded reasonable attorney fees only upon a showing that the case was without foundation.
