Had the judge not rejected the argument, the plaintiffs were to be a class of individual men over the age of 21 who entered New York nightclubs on a ladies' night since June 21, 2004. The nightclubs' attorney argued that cover charges for men are not so burdensome as to deny entry to male customers. Furthermore, they argued that males may benefit from ladies' nights because it encourages females to patronize the club. (Gravamen argument resulting in victory!) .
Hollander is no stranger to controversy. He sued Columbia University, because its women's studies program is discriminatory because the school lacked a comparable men's program. One can predict a difficult struggle with that lawsuit as well.
