There were at least three cases of which I know, cited at
* In re Urban League v. Sambo's, No. 011790461 (R.I. Comm. for
Hum. Rts. Mar. 16, 1981) ordered Sambo's to stop using the name.
* Sambo's v. City Council of City of Toledo, 466 F. Supp. 177
(N.D. Ohio 1979) held that it was unconstitutional for a city to deny sign
permits to Sambo's because of its name.
* Sambo's Restaurants, Inc. v. City of Ann Arbor, 663 F.2d 686
(6th Cir. 1981), held likewise, over a dissent by Judge Keith.
I'm unaware of any successful defense by Hooters against any hostile
environment claims, but would love to hear details if anyone has them.
