HONOLULU (AP) - A judge has ruled a Hawaii bed and breakfast violated the law when two women were denied a room because they're gay.
Lambda Legal announced Monday the Hawaii judge ruled in favor of a California couple who sued Aloha Bed & Breakfast for discrimination. In 2007, Diane Cervelli and Taeko Bufford tried to book a room at the east Honolulu bed and breakfast. They say that when the couple asked for just one bed, the owner said she was uncomfortable with lesbians staying in her home because of her religious views.
The ruling says the bed and breakfast violated the state public accommodations law and is ordered to stop discriminating against same-sex couples.
An attorney for the bed and breakfast says the ruling doesn't consider the owner's First Amendment rights.
