A court in Chile has slapped a fine on a motel that banned entry to a gay couple in the first ruling associated with a new-antidiscrimination law. The judge ordered the motel on Friday to pay a $4,000 fine to a lesbian couple and ordered motel owners to never again forbid people from renting a room based on their sexual orientation. Chile's leading gay rights group is calling it a victory for equality.
