Disability Conciliation Service case on speech impairment

Example of a case settled by the Disability Conciliation Service (www.drc-gb.org):

"A man with a severe speech impediment was refused service at a local pub and subjected to derogatory and insulting remarks by a member of the bar staff, who alleged he was drunk. A meeting between the two parties was set up by the DRC and once the issue became clear a full apology was given by the bar manager who also agreed to his staff undertaking disability training."

It is not clear whether the speech impairment was a stammer.
