Centerplate Settles Discrimination Lawsuit With Justice Dept.

The Justice Department has settled allegations that Centerplate discriminated against non-U.S. citizens.

The Justice Department has settled allegations that sports/entertainment foodservice contractor Centerplate discriminated by requiring non-U.S. citizens to produce specific documents issued by the Department of Homeland Security, reports the Associated Press. Similar requests were allegedly not asked of U.S. citizens. The company will pay $250,000 in civil penalties, the third-highest amount paid since the Immigration and Nationality Act's anti-discrimination provision went into effect in 1986. Centerplate operates food and concessions services at over 250 venues, including 10 NFL stadiums, three Major League Baseball ballparks and two NBA arenas.
