    The plaintiffs are suing Napa Valley Wine Train, Inc., Noble House Hotels & Resorts, Ltd., Brooks Street Property Management, Inc., Kim Powers, Kira McManus Devitt, and Anna Marquinn.

    "The goal of this lawsuit is to ensure that this sort of racial discrimination does not happen to anyone else," said the plaintiffs' attorney Waukeen Q. McCoy. "These are highly educated, successful, and well-respected women in their community, and the treatment they received was disgraceful and illegal."
