A serial suer has targeted a California cannabis dispensary, the fourth business in the San Luis Obispo area he’s filed a lawsuit against, for alleged gender discrimination. Apparently it was ladies’ night, and the feeling was not right (for him).
For the fourth time in seven years, an Orange County men’s rights activist is suing a San Luis Obispo County business for alleged gender discrimination over a Ladies Night promotion.
This time, he’s targeting a San Luis Obispo cannabis dispensary.
Steve Frye, a former member of the National Coalition for Men, filed a class action lawsuit in San Luis Obispo Superior Court on Sept. 16 against Megan’s Organic Market and its owner, Megan Souza, over a so-called “Ladies’ Night” promotion that offers a 16% discount on products to women every Monday night until the close of business.
The lawsuit says Frye entered the business during the promotion hours in June and witnessed women get the discount while it was not offered to him.
The complaint notes that the business’ own advertisement acknowledges it can not solely offer the discount to women.
