Several press releases dealt with these cases. Click here and here to find articles on the judgement.

On December 17, 2014 at a court hearing in the Munich District Court, a man from Burkina Faso requested a Munich based discotheque to stop denying him entry to the nightclub.

That night, the plaintiff was carrying out a “testing procedure” together with other colleagues from the Munich Foreigners’ Council. He tried to enter several nightclubs in order to document racist practices at the entrance of nightclubs. The plaintiff tried to enter 25 nightclubs. He was denied entry five times that night.

The court decided that one of those discotheques denied him access on account of his ethnic origin. The court convicted this particular nightclub to pay compensation amounting to 500 € and to bear the attorney’s fees.

Earlier the Munich District Court rejected a complaint from the same plaintiff. More information on this case can be found here.
