Is it fair for women to get preferential treatment in bars? Proof that some lawyers have too much time on their hands.

Even if you’re not a fan of free drinks or free club admission, it’s nice to know your rights as a woman – or woman-seeking bar-hopping man – have been preserved.

In 2007, self-proclaimed anti-feminist lawyer Den Hollander sued several New York bars for sexism because they used “ladies night” promotions to charge men for entrance while allowing women to get in free or at reduced prices. After losing in a lower court, Hollander appealed to the Second Court of Appeals. Last week he lost there as well.

From the New York Daily News:

The court, with evident amusement, said it must rule against Den Hollander even though “without action on our part, (he) paints a picture of a bleak future, where ‘none other than what’s left of the Wall Street moguls’ will be able to afford to attend nightclubs.”

“The guys are paying for girls to party. I don’t think that’s fair,” Den Hollander said. “It’s a transfer of money from the wallets of guys to the pocketbooks of girls.”

Hollander has vowed to appeal to the Supreme Court, where, according to the News article above, he says his chances are “about the same as some pretty young lady paying my way on a date.”

If you’re a woman who’s planning on celebrating your most recent court victory with two-for-one drinks at a ladies night near you, be a sport: buy a drink for the loser sitting the next stool over.
