» Trial Court Strikes Blow For Common Sense In Anti-"Ladies Day" Case from Cal Biz Lit

Attorney Rava has virtually ended the proliferation of the illegal marketing promotions across California, often innocuously called Ladies' Day or Ladies' Night, that treated male and female consumers unequally, working with the California Attorney General, ABC, DFEH, and other State agencies and officials. E.g., see http://ag.ca.gov/gambling/pdfs/NUM8LOT.pdf, which was a result of Mr. Rava's great work. It's no wonder he won a unanimous opinion by the California Supreme Court in Angelucci v. Century Supper Club (2007) 41 Cal.4th 160.

And I wouldn't be surprised if the author of this piece on Mr. Rava gets it with a defamation suit for his false statements about the A's giveaway being on Mother's Day because it wasn't, or that it was a "floppy hat" because it wasn't.

Not surprinsingly, Scott "False Facts" Graham publishes another false statement when he writes that Mr. Rava's clients' complaints against Squaw Valley had to do with Squaw giving discounted lift tickets to laid off or furloughed workers. Squaw was giving discounted lift tickets to only State employees, whether or not they were laid off or furloughed, clearly an Unruh Act violation, just like Squaw could not give discounts to private sector employees and charge State employees full price. I think this Scott Graham is a moron and should get his facts straight.

What's missing from this story is the epilogue. It appears both Bear Valley and its co-defendant Anheuser-Busch, who sponsored Ladies' Day at Bear Valley giving female consumers free lift tickets while charging men $55 for theirs, thought this trial court's ruling would be reversed on appeal - after all, Bear Valley was supposedly insured for $50 million, and therefore settled the case and agreed to never again charge consumers different prices for the same goods or services.
