Legal claims can be filed when a case of discrimination has occurred while entering a nightclub.

If the court concludes that there has been discrimination in accessing a nightclub, it can oblige the nightclub to pay compensation to the plaintiff. Moreover, the court can urge the nightclub to abstain from any discrimination in future (provided that s/he behaves according the house rules). The court can also impose a fine.

Since 2010, complaints have been filed in the context of the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG) in German cities such as Tübingen,  Hanover, Leipzig and Munich on account of ethnically motivated denials to enter a nightclub.
