Dress-code lawsuit against Mosaic in Power & Light District settled

A lawsuit alleging that Mosaic Lounge in the Power & Light District enforced a discriminatory dress code has been settled. The Kansas City Star reported that the lawsuit was dismissed after a confidential money settlement (and no finding of wrongdoing) was reached between the plaintiffs and the nightclub.

Attorney Arthur Benson filed the lawsuit in January 2010  on behalf of an

African-American family who

claimed that they weren’t allowed

in Mosaic while white patrons wearing similar clothes were

let in on August 22, 2009. The lawsuit named Mosaic and Power & Light operator, Cordish, as defendants. However, Cordish was recently dismissed as a defendant.
