Jury Throws Book at Muslim Hotel Owner for Throwing Jewish Guests Out of her Pool
After five days of deliberation, a Santa Monica jury announced on Wednesday that Shangri-La Hotel owner Tamie Adaya committed anti-Semitic discrimination when she uttered her now-famous cry, “Get the [expletive] Jews out of my pool!”
The jury found for the plaintiffs on multiple acts of intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence, malice, fraud and oppression, and violations of the California Civil Rights Act.
The 18 individual plaintiffs and one corporate plaintiff were awarded $1.2 million in compensatory damages, but the final amount Adaya and her company will owe is expected to go much higher, because the individual plaintiffs are entitled to punitive damages on many of the counts.
Oh for fuck's sake!
I am trying desperately to get out of Dodge and now this shows up.

I was just noodling around, looking at some of the comments when I saw this:

I suspect Mike will write about it more. The Shangri-la hotel case is settled.
First Melky and now this!
I am outa here!
We are going to Mount Shasta and we are going to fish for trout in the Upper Sacramento River and, I swear to G-d, if Laurie so much as even consults her I-Pad, or whatever that damn thing is, I am going to stomp the holy hell out of it and fling it into the river.
