Ladies' night all right with New York judges
Roy Den Hollander,feminist foe
Here in Colorado, ladies' nights have survived Steve Horner's repeated attempts to shut them down, and a New York appeals court has just ruled that ladies' nights are all right with them, too.
The Manhattan-based Second Court of Appeals rejected Manhattan attorney and feminist-foe Roy Den Hollander's claims that ladies' night deals are unconstitutional, a result of "40 years of lobbying and intimidation, [by] the special interest group called 'Feminism.' "
Hollander had filed suit against several New York clubs, saying their ladies night promotions discriminated against men; since they were licensed by the state, he argued, they were required to adhere to the equal protection clause of the Constitution.
The appeals court rejected that argument, saying that nightclubs weren't "state actors," and that "liquor licenses are not directed related to the pricing scheme" at the door.
"Now is the time for all good men to fight for their rights before they have no rights left," proclaims Hollander's website. He told the New York Daily News that he plans to appeal the appeal court's ruling -- all the way to the Supreme Court, if he has to.
