This is how you get sued.  You buy an old motel, start making a lot of changes, such as: 1) telling Hispanic employees to pronounce their Hispanic names in an Anglo sort of way, 2) telling the Hispanic employees to speak English in your presence,  and 3) when they ask why, you tell them because you are the owner.  This is what happened in northern New Mexico to one new owner of an old motel.  See story.  So, yes, now the new owner is under intense scrutiny.  Fortunately, he has not been sued, yet.  But, he did fire some Hispanic workers, so lawsuits might still be in the works.  He seems to regret some of his actions.  Fortunately, in the lawsuit business, good manners and sincerity do count.
