CalBizLit previously blogged here and here about that brave crusading lawyer and sometime litigant Alfred Rava's efforts to eliminate the scourge of business discrimination against fathers, who sustain humiliation and other forms of emotional distress when they are deprived of stupid hats and other ballpark giveaways on Mother's Day. Now comes word of his efforts to assert a class action of the same type against Bear Valley Ski Resort.
Didn't work out so well. L.A. Superior Court Anthony Mohr denied Rava's motion to certify a class of 995 helpless victims of Ladies Day discrimination. Judge Mohr noted that because the Unruh Act, under which Rava proceeded, provides for minimum penalties of $4,000, there was no need for a class action.
