From the San Diego Union-Tribune:
Lawyers quietly settled all the suits last month. Seven nightspots in the Gaslamp and elsewhere in San Diego County agreed to pay a total of $125,000 to two men who accused them of violating a decades-old California civil-rights law. [...]
The lawsuits were filed earlier this year on behalf of two men who spent time trying to get ladies night discounts at a variety of bars and nightclubs, only to be rebuffed and “laughed at,” according to the suits.
I can’t say that this strikes me as a terribly important issue, but offhand I agree with the rulings: people shouldn’t be offered different prices for the same services on account of their sex. That seems pretty basic. On the other hand, this ruling does legitimize my belief that most of the things men’s rights advocates make a fuss about are basically petty and unimportant.
