Anti-Discrimination Law

DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF CLOTHING OR CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS ILLEGAL

According to the Annotated Code of Maryland, Article 49B, Section 8, titled Discrimination by persons, businesses, etc., licensed or regulated by Department of Licensing and Regulation, "(i) t It is unlawful for any person, business, corporation, partnership, copartnership or association or any other individual, agent, employee or association or any other individual, agent, employee, group or firm which is licensed or regulated by the Department of Licensing and Regulation... to refuse, withhold, deny or discriminate against any person the accommodations, advantages, facilities, privileges, sales, or services because of the race, sex creed, color, national origin, marital status, or physical or mental handicap of any person."

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. 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 could be subject to lawsuit Any person has a right to prosecute a civil action for injunctive and other appropriate equitable relief, including the award of compensatory monetary damages.

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.
