Clubs and bars have been luring women to their establishments with lower fees and shorter waits for decades, but a recent lawsuit claims that the practice is unconstitutional. New York attorney Roy Den Hollander has filed a class action against certain Manhattan nightclubs for "invidious discrimination" against men in their policies for admitting patrons. Hollander alleges that the clubs are violating the 14th Amendment's guarantee of equal protection under the law, and he's seeking an injunction.
