    Any establishment is allowed to not serve anyone they please and they don't even need to give a reason, those are there rights.

    Not sure about the overcharging but most buffet places have some clauses that allow them to do so if they feel you are not sticking to their rules 'usually a fair consumption rule'

    same thing occurs when you have a 'free texts' package on a mobile phone and you get over zealous with it.

    no
    big

    Totally false here.

    A racist can't open a sandwich shop that only serves White people.

    There was a news story about a printing shop where a lesbian tried to get them to print stuff and they wouldn't because they were Christians and didn't believe in homosexuality...and they government punished them.

    I think in an eating/drinking establishment, you aren't entitled to serve anyone you don't see fit. Similar to a club where you aren't required to let anyone in.

    YOu can 'say' it's because of this but it's can be 'actually' because of something else. I'm even sure if they simply say they don't want your custom, they are within their rights.

    If you openly provide a service, I dont see why you should be forced to serve people.

    Countless rugby and football clubs have been banned from drinking establisments and restaurants because they provide the wrong ambience.

    A rugby club was banned from a pizza hall because a group of twelve of them would simply destroy all the pizzas being made, and no one else would be able to have any.

    Infact a very similar case happened at my university where a member of a indian restaurant had established a 'half price membership card' enabling him half price on the total bill if he was present. One night they only offered him half price on his individual meal so they walked out without paying. They restaurant allowed it because they had a 'terms and conditions apply, subject to change' get out claus on the card.

    :confused:

    If anything i'll put it down to variations in the law between here and the united states, Especially if the owners aren't as vocal about their reasons for not serving you.

    That's because of Civil Right's legislation, and those people discriminated against choose to file suit, it's not an automatic slap on the wrist. Unless someone can pin your actions as being racist you really have the right to serve or not serve anyone you so choose.

    Same with hiring and firing laws.

    Yeah, racism/sexism is way too vague. Someone could depreive you because of your race or gender, but they could just say you were being unruly or something. It's hard to prove.

    Yeah, those cases are not nearly as frequent as people believe. Mainly because courts demand some pretty outstanding evidence for those to go to trial. A lot of times it will come from groups of people, or a town (like the city of Charleston) who is a little more suspect of the behavior of a business, rather than one particular incident.
