TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The U.S. Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against a hotel alleging it discriminated against a veteran with a service animal.

The complaint, filed Thursday, alleges the Days Inn and Conference Center Tulsa maintained a “no pet” policy that prohibited Jeffrey Crockett, his service animal and his family from staying there in 2010.

In the lawsuit, the U.S. seeks an order declaring the hotel violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and requiring them to adopt a nondiscrimination policy.

The complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma, was filed against Sairam Enterprises Inc. LLC, which owns and operates the hotel.

No phone number was available for Sairam Enterprises, but the Days Inn Tulsa website lists ADA service animals as acceptable guests under its pet policy.
