dunkin' donuts sued for discrimination

In Chicago, an Indian American couple whose U.S. franchise agreement with Dunkin' Donuts is being terminated is accusing the company of racial discrimination: Dunkin' Donuts sued for discrimination. Mahendra and Nita Patel's counterclaim against Dunkin' Donuts charges that the company came up with false and baseless reasons to terminate contracts with primarily "brown skin, first generation American" franchises or to force them to sell the franchise back to Dunkin' Donuts or a Caucasian operators for less than the fair market price. That's racist! The company says no way. We shall see.
