Laguna Beach Urth Caffe countersues seven Muslim women who claimed discrimination
by Erika I. Ritchie
A civil rights lawsuit filed in April by seven Muslim women claiming they were targeted and humiliated when forced to leave Urth Caffé by management is fraudulent, an attorney for the Laguna Beach restaurant said in a brief filed Tuesday supporting a lawsuit countering the seven women for trespass.
The trespass claim followed a lawsuit filed by the women claiming they were subjected to religious discrimination when Urth Caffé staff, with assistance from Laguna Beach police officers, asked them to leave when the women refused to abide by the café's seating policy.
Tuesday's brief was filed by the American Freedom Law Center, a national public interest law firm retained by Urth Caffé.
