Public Accommodation Laws
It shall be an unlawful discriminatory practice for any person, being the owner, lessee, proprietor, manager, superintendent, agent, or employee of any place of public accommodation, because of physical or mental disability directly or indirectly to refuse, withhold from or deny to such person any of the accommodations, advantages, facilities or privileges thereof, or to publish, post, or advertise any written or printed communication indicating that any services, products, or facilities may be denied to any person on the basis of disability. Any suggestion that the business or patronage of any disabled person is unwelcome is also unlawful.
Plaintiff may recover compensatory damages and reasonable attorney fees. The defendant may also be subject to a fine to vindicate public interest of $10,000 for a first offense, and up to $75,000 thereafter.
