Ladies Night is constitutional!
It's closing time for a lawsuit alleging ladies' nights at nightclubs discriminate against men. Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum tossed the lawsuit out of federal court in Manhattan on Monday. She said nightclubs can price their products as they wish because they're not acting as representatives of the state.
The lawsuit was brought by attorney Roy Den Hollander, who has crusaded against feminism and recently sued a university over its women's studies program.
Hollander said ladies' nights at Manhattan nightclubs discriminate against men by offering women free or discounted admission and drinks. He tried to link the state to the discounts because it licenses the sale of alcohol at nightclubs. Maybe I'm missing something, but why would a guy have a problem with ladies' night? It's been a long time since I did the club scene, but aren't beneficiaries of ladies' night the men who go to these clubs to meet all these young ladies who are there to enjoy the free or discounted refreshment?
