Two New York women and a Vermont country inn have settled a lawsuit that accused the business of refusing to host the couple’s wedding reception.
The American Civil Liberties Union said Thursday the Wildflower Inn in Lyndonville agreed to pay a $10,000 civil penalty to the Vermont Human Rights Commission and to place $20,000 in a charitable trust.
Under the settlement, the inn also agreed it would no longer host weddings and their receptions. The innkeepers’ lawyer, Jim Campbell, said they had decided previously to end that part of their business.
