Dover, Delaware– UPDATE: The Delaware Supreme Court ruled on February 17th 2011 that the white movie theater manager, David Stewart, did not discriminate against a theater mostly full of black patrons when he gave an announcement prior to a showing of “Why Did I Get Married” in 2007.
We originally reported that the Human Relations commissions ordered the Carmike theater to pay the patrons in the 2007 ruling. The theater was actually vindicated by the Delaware Supreme Court days prior, which we failed to report.

Justices Randy J. Holland, Carolyn Berger and Jack B. Jacobs ruled the non-racial explanations for the announcement were reasonable and pointed to uncontested evidence that a week earlier Stewart had made the same announcement at a showing of the movie “Halloween” to a largely teenage audience.
