So in terms of law, nightclubs are not legally allowed to have a drunk person on the premises or they can lose your licence ( I appreciate that this is a bit absurd as usually most patrons are drunk in night clubs but that's what the law states). Secondly, the nightclub have the legal right to reject or eject anyone they want from the club. There could only potentially be a case for discrimination if they knew the persona had ailments and ejected them specifically for this reason. That would be an extremely difficult thing to prove!. However, what I think you are getting at is duty of care. Nightclubs of course have a duty of care to their patrons. However, legally the only person who can make a definitive decision on this would be judge. But in order to have any type of claim, firstly, three would have to be injury to the person you are referring to. If there was then you could bring a claim against the club however, you would have to prove that the incident was "foreseeable" by the nightclub. So if they ejected a drunk person and they were later attacked then you would have to somehow prove that the nightclub should have been aware this was going to happen due to the, ejecting the person. These are not easy cases but that is how the law works in terms of these issues.
