  Fraternal Order of Eagles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fraternal Order of Eagles International is a fraternal organization.
It was founded on February 6, 1898, in Seattle, Washington, by a group of six theater owners, including John Cort (the first president), brothers John W. and Tim J. Considine, Harry Leavitt, Mose Goldsmith, and Arthur Williams.
Originally, membership in the order was restricted to whites only; this led to a controversy in Milwaukee in the late 1960s, when a radical Roman Catholic priest, Father James Groppi, discovered that many local judges were members of the order.

It was over 100 years ago on February 6th, 1898 the Fraternal Order of Eagles was founded by six theater owners sitting on a pile of lumber in Moran's shipyard in Seattle Washington.
The order was unique in it's concept of brotherhood and it's early success has been attributed to it's establishment of a sick and funeral benefit (no Eagle was ever buried in a "Potter's Field"), along with provisions for an Aerie physician and other "fringe benefits", unknown in other fraternal organizations up to that time.

Although we do not agree that the Public Accommodation Act is as narrow as the Eagles perceive, we conclude that the court erred in resolving this case on summary judgment; the question whether the Fraternal Order of the Eagles is a "place of public accommodation" presents a disputed issue of material fact.
The Fraternal Order of the Eagles was founded in Seattle, Washington, in 1898.
The Eagles are not, at least for purposes of this case, a "bona fide club or accommodation which is in its nature distinctly private." Some of their activities, including the furnishing of food, beverages, and social amusements, are not distinctly private and, in fact, the evidence shows that those activities are open to both genders.

The Eagles acknowledge the general applicability of the rule, but they point out that we have in the past recognized that "[t]he law of the case doctrine is essentially one of judicial economy and judicial discretion," State v.
The Eagles contend that "the [a]ct cannot be constitutionally applied to the Eagles' membership policy, because a particularized theistic religious belief is a prerequisite to membership * * *." The trial court ruled that this case does not implicate the Eagles' religious freedom because, in essence, they are not being compelled to admit atheists.
As the Eagles aptly point out in their brief, fraternal orders became extremely popular in the nation in the first half of the nineteenth century as its population spread west.

Because this appeal arises from a trial court order granting summary judgment, this court reviews the order of summary judgment de novo, engaging in the same inquiry as the trial court, which is to consider all facts submitted in the record and reasonable inferences in a light most favorable to the nonmoving party.
