Motel 6 to pay $7.6 million for giving guest lists to U.S. immigration

Source: Reuters

(Reuters) - Motel 6 will pay up to $7.6 million to Hispanic guests to settle a proposed class-action lawsuit claiming that it violated their privacy by regularly providing guest lists to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.

Terms of the preliminary settlement with eight Hispanic plaintiffs - seven from Arizona and one from Washington state - were disclosed in a Nov. 2 filing with the federal court in Phoenix.

Motel 6 also agreed to a two-year consent decree barring it from sharing guest data with immigration authorities absent warrants, subpoenas, or threats of serious crime or harm.

Court approval is required. Motel 6 did not admit liability, and denied engaging in unlawful conduct.

6. M-6 would have been a huge hit in Nazi Germany

Circumstances may change over time, but the evil character of those who choose to inform on their fellow citizens on the basis of race, ethnicity, or religion does not.

8. Minus one third for the lawyers' cut, that works out to
