Georgetown student suing Mr. Smith’s for discrimination

Georgetown student Taylor Price is suing M Street bar Mr. Smith’s for discrimination, according to ABC 7 News.

Price, who has been in a wheelchair for five years after a swimming accident, claims he was discriminated against when he was at the bar with some friends on January 23, 2009.

According to ABC 7 News:

“I was told by the manager that the bar was too crowded and that I was a fire hazard and I was not allowed to go to the back of the bar,” [Price] said. “I just could not believe that someone would say that to me. All I wanted to do is enjoy the evening with my friends.”

And according to Price, that’s not all the manager said. “He pointed to the corner and told me that if I wished to remain at the bar that I would have to sit in the corner,” he said.

The manager of Mr. Smith’s had no comment on the lawsuit, according to ABC 7 News.
