The first filing in the Motel 6 lawsuit was from California attorney, Jeffrey Brnovich. His office wrote to the company in October 2017, but he did not respond to a question about the matter. A spokesman for the California attorney general’s office did not provide an update on his inquiry. He declined to comment further on the case. During a recent conference call, he said he did not have any new information to share with the media.

The complaint, filed in federal court in Arizona, alleges that employees of Motel 6 provided ICE with guest lists without a warrant.
The hotel chain allegedly violated the Washington Law Against Discrimination by either direct or indirect discrimination based on national origin. The lawsuit claims that the hotel violated the privacy of its guests, hid its policy from guests, and misrepresented its privacy policies. The plaintiff is asking for a payout of $1 billion, which would pay out a settlement to all those who were harmed by the ICE program.
Motel 6 is being sued by immigrants in two separate states. One of these lawsuits states that hotel employees gave ICE guest lists with their names and license plate numbers. The hotel voluntarily shared the information with ICE, which then used it to target immigrants and deport them. This violation of guest privacy is against the Washington Law Against Discrimination. The settlement reveals that Motel Six knew that the government was using the guest lists to target immigrants and aliens. The Washington Law Against Discrimination prohibits both direct and indirect discrimination based on national origin, and Ferguson’s case claims that the company did both.
While the U.S. Supreme Court declined to decide on the propriety of a cy pres settlement, the California case was not overruled. However, Brnovich did submit an amicus brief in the California lawsuit. The case contends that cy pres settlements should be avoided. The California law allows Motel 6 to pay out damages even if only a small percentage of the class files a claim.
Another Motel 6 lawsuit involves the use of private information in the name of immigrants.
The hotel chain, Motel 6, and ICE illegally shared the information with ICE, and 13 people were detained because of their ethnicity. The ICE spokeswoman referred all questions to the Motel 6 lawsuit. The plaintiff identified himself under a pseudonym and was held in detention for more than a month. He sued after the employee photocopied his license.
A separate Motel 6 lawsuit filed by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund alleges that the company gave federal immigration agents a list of its guests without a warrant. In this case, the company did not tell the ICE agents who sought to question its guests. The ICE officials claimed that the list contained the names of undocumented immigrants. In other words, they sought the information so that they could deport them.
A class of plaintiffs in the Motel 6 lawsuit filed in the California federal court claimed that the hotel chain had violated the rights of immigrants and provided personal information to ICE without a warrant. In November, a preliminary settlement proposal was reached in the lawsuit. A new settlement proposal was filed on June 28 that increased the potential recovery for the class and individual class members. In addition, the lawsuit seeks to prevent a further increase in immigration enforcement costs.
In the Motel 6 lawsuit, the plaintiffs allege that the hotel chain gave federal immigration agents personal information without a warrant.
The suit also claims that the employees of the Motel 6 chain abused and exploited customers, including Latinos. The settlement also claims that the hotels provided the information to ICE without a warrant. This is a major violation of the law and the settlement will help victims of illegal immigration by paying a hefty sum of money.
The settlement in the Motel 6 lawsuit is a landmark decision. It will help prevent the hotel from divulging this information to ICE. The settlement will cover all Motel 6 locations in the United States and will cover the costs of the new laws passed by Congress.
