Berkeley Iceland

A pair of gay skaters filed a discrimination lawsuit against the company alleging they were harassed for holding hands. John Manzon-Santos and Alan Lessik claim Berkeley Iceland's manager twice told them to stop skating together and allege they were subjected to gay bias because they saw male-female couples holding hands while skating at the same time. Berkeley Iceland has agreed to hold monthly gay-straight skate nights, to sign an anti-discrimination pledge and to contribute $5,000 to two gay groups as part of the legal settlement.
