Any other lawyers remember this case??? It is all of the con law books. "The Ollies BBQ case" went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court on the issue of serving persons of color. Ollie lost. Don't ask me what the grounds were -- I just remember my professor thinking it was appropriate for Congress to legislate on these things, because the BBQ joint affected interstate commerce.Originally posted by Magicfloat
Interesting history,Ollie McClung was a nice guy who employeed mostly blacks and treated them like family and paid them well but didn't want blacks served there.
