CLEVELAND, OH — Today, 26 African-American diners dismissed their race-discrimination suit captioned Nelson, et al. v. Bahama Breeze Holdings et al., Cuyahoga Common Pleas Case No. CV 18 148902. The matter has been resolved to the parties’ satisfaction through a settlement that includes financial considerations as well as enhancements to Bahama Breeze’s existing diversity-training curriculum. Plaintiffs particularly appreciate Bahama Breeze’s commitment to diversity training at its Beachwood, Ohio location.
The complaint was filed on September 10, 2018 against the Bahama Breeze and two white managers, Frances Skupnik and Devin Jenkins, alleging race discrimination in public accommodations and making false police reports.
