Chicago Partner E. Jason Tremblay recently obtained the dismissal of a series of federal civil rights and public accommodation claims filed against a national seminar group.  The plaintiff was an individual who attended a seminar being presented by the seminar group at a local Chicago hotel.  After the plaintiff became disruptive, she was removed from the seminar and, within days, filed a federal complaint demanding millions in damages.  She alleged that she was discriminated against and denied the full enjoyment of a place of public accommodation based on her race, religion and disability.  Highlighting the deficiencies in her complaint, as well as the complete lack of any facts to illustrate that her removal from the seminar had anything to do with her race, religion or disability, Mr. Tremblay  moved to dismiss the plaintiff’s complaint.  In dismissing plaintiff’s complaint with prejudice and denying her leave to file an amended complaint, the federal district court stated that her allegations were so deficient that any amendment would be futile.  Considering that plaintiffs are generally granted numerous times to replead their complaint, this was a significant and cost-effective victory for the client.
