Anti-Discrimination Law

DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF CLOTHING OR CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS ILLEGAL

Nebraska Statute Section 20-148 makes it a crime to deny the full and equal enjoyment of any public place of accommodation due to unfair and unconstitutional discriminatory activity. This section specifically states that “any person or company… who subjects or causes to be subjected any citizen of this state or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the United States Constitution or the Constitution and laws of the State of Nebraska, shall be liable to such injured person in a civil action or other proper proceeding for redress brought by such injured person.” In addition, any person whose exercise or enjoyment of rights secured by the Constitution or laws of the United States has been interfered with or attempted to be interfered with institute and prosecute a civil action for injunctive and other appropriate equitable relief including the award of compensatory monetary damages, The Supreme Court ruled in the case of Cohen v. California, 403 U.S. 15 (1971) that individuals have the constitutional right under the First Amendment to wear clothing which displays writing or designs. A citizen has the right to move freely and peaceably in public places, without fear of being discriminately removed therefrom In addition, the right of an individual to freedom of association has long been recognized and protected by the United States Supreme Court Thus, a person’s right to wear the clothing of his choice, as well as his right to belong to any club or organization of his choice is constitutionally protected and persons or establishments who discriminate on the basis of clothing or club membership are subject to lawsuit.

Don’t subject yourself to civil and criminal penalties and to expensive and time consuming lawsuits. Don’t discriminate against people wearing colors or motorcycle attire.
