In the year 1967, in the middle of Colorado is a city by the name of Dinosaur. In the city of Dinosaur, there are 5 hotels, but one hotel is owned by Stanley Rolleston, the cousin of Moreton Rolleston. Like his cousin from Atlanta, Stanley Rolleston is extremely racist, even more racist than his cousin, and refuses to let anyone stay in his hotel that is not of Irish descent. Stanley is eventually brought to court by a group of Spainards who want to stay in his hotel because the weekend they are staying in town is the weekend of DinoFest and Stanley Rolleston’s hotel is one of the nicer hotels in Dinosaur. The case eventually makes it all the way to the United States Supreme Court.
1. What arguments will Stanley Rolleston most likely make to the United States Supreme Court about why his hotel should be allowed to refuse service to anyone not of Irish descent?
2. If the United States Supreme Court follows the precedent set by Heart of Atlanta, who will the Supreme Court likely rule in favor of?
3. Explain why the Supreme Court will rule in favor of the party you stated in part 2 of this question.
