Man targets Nevada's ladies' night law

ST. GEORGE, Utah, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- A Utah man famous for his sex discrimination lawsuits against businesses with "ladies' night" promotions said his sights are set on repealing a Nevada law.

Steve Horner of St. George said he wants to see Nevada lawmakers repeal the law, which was passed this summer and takes effect Oct. 1, because it allows for "ladies' night" promotions that offer free admission and discounts on the basis of gender, the Las Vegas Sun reported Friday.

Horner said he filed complaints with the Nevada Equal Rights Commission last year against the Blue Martini bar and restaurant in Las Vegas over its ladies' night, but the complaint was rejected because he had never been to the bar in person.

Horner said allowing ladies' night promotions is discriminatory and unconstitutional.

"How can you say you're an egalitarian state one moment, and then you're not when there's money to be made?" he said.
