Anti-Discrimination Law

DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF CLOTHING OR CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS ILLEGAL

It is unlawful in the State of Utah to discriminate against individuals wearing “motorcycle apparel” or “colors”. Article L Section 1 of the Utah State Constitution provides that “all men have the inherent and inalienable right… to communicate freely their thoughts and opinions” Utah Code Ann. 513-7-1 et seq. (1953 as amended) provides that “all persons within the jurisdiction of this state are free and equal and are entitled to full and equal accommodations, advantages, facilities, privileges, goods and services in all business establishments and in all places of public accommodation.”

Violation of this statute may result in a finding that the subject business is a public nuisance, and the State of Utah may proceed to enjoin any business in violation of this act. Additionally, a violation of this act gives an aggrieved person the right to maintain a civil action for damages against anyone who aids, incites, or conspires to bring about such a denial of rights.

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.
