FRESNO - The ACLU of Northern California today filed a request for investigation with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), urging it to open a probe into "The Brig" a Fresno bar on Blackstone Avenue for civil rights violations. DFEH is the agency charged with enforcing California’s civil rights laws.

The request states that on March 12, the bar applied an unwritten minimum drink rule to Abre’ Conner and Novella Coleman – two ACLU civil rights lawyers, who appeared to be the only Black people in the bar – and not to other customers. It also states that the Brig’s bartender used physical force to try to move Conner, who is 5’3”, out of the bar.
