Public Accommodation Laws
State law generally prohibits discrimination in places of public accommodation and amusement because of disability.
Defendants found to have discriminated against a person with disabilities will be charged between $100-$1,000 for a first violation and up to $10,000 for subsequent violations within five years.
Plaintiffs, including the state, alleging a violation of public accommodation discrimination may bring a civil action for appropriate injunctive relief, for damages including punitive damages and, in the case of a prevailing plaintiff, for court costs and reasonable attorney fees.
