A one-man campaign against “Ladies Nights” did not get far. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday rejected Roy Den Hollander’s claim that the Copacabana Nightclub and other establishments were “state actors” who violated the U.S. Constitution by charging men more for admission and drinks than women.

Hollander said “Ladies Nights” stem from “40 years of lobbying and intimidation, [by] the special interest group called “Feminism’ [which] has succeeded in creating a customary practice … of invidious discrimination against men.” He said state action was present because the clubs were selling alcohol under a closely regulated state system. But Southern District of New York Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum rejected the claim of state action in 2008 and the circuit agreed in Hollander v. Copacabana, 08-5547-cv.
