Holly Lawton February 13, 2006 HEART OF ATLANTA MOTEL v. UNITED STATES KATZENBACH v. McCLUNG The Heart of Atlanta Motel was located in Atlanta, GA and had 216 rooms available for transient guest. It was readily accessible to interstate highways 75 and 85 and state highways 23 and 41. The Motel owner violated the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by not allowing Negroes to stay in the hotel. Like the Heart of Atlanta Motel trial the Katzenbach vs. McClung brought up the same questions. Ollie’s Barbecue is a family owned restaurant in Birmingham, AL who would not allow Negroes to dine in the restaurant. They were able to order food to take out, but the owners would not allow them to dine in because they felt it would hurt their business. These cases are similar because they both deal with racial discrimination. The Heart of Atlanta Motel would not allow Negroes to stay in the hotel and therefore it forced them to go out of their way to find a place to stay. It interfered with the interstate commerce law.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
