Lesbian Couple Wins Discrimination Lawsuit Against Religious Bed and Breakfast Owner Who Denied Them a Room

by on April 16, 2013

THE ‘STATE PUBLIC ACCOMODATIONS’ LAW VIOLATES MULTIPLE ELEMENTS OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT INCLUDING FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION.

“When Cervelli specified they would need one bed, the owner asked if they were lesbians. Cervelli responded truthfully and the owner said she was uncomfortable having lesbians in her house because of her religious views, the lawsuit said.

“The bed and breakfast violated the state public accommodations law and is ordered to stop discriminating against same-sex couples, according to the ruling dated April 11. The public accommodations law prohibits establishments that provide lodging to transient guests from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation, race, color, ancestry, religion, disability and sex -including gender identity or expression.”
