A notoriously litigious men’s rights activist sued a Donald Trump-owned golf course for discrimination over a discounted fee for “ladies” to raise breast cancer awareness.

The 2011 lawsuit filed by Steve Frye — who frequently sues golf courses and other businesses for promotions aimed at attracting women customers — came, ironically enough, at the same time employees were accusing Trump of threatening to fire unattractive women, reported the Los Angeles Times.

Frye filed the class-action suit accusing the Rancho Palos Verdes golf course over a 25-percent discount for an October 2010 event, which was tied to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, under the state’s Unruh Civil Rights Act.

Men’s rights activists like Frye, who is listed as a member of the nonprofit National Coalition for Men, have filed dozens of lawsuits under the act related to women’s networking events, professional sports teams and other alleged instances of discrimination against men.

Frye has sued over a Playboy Mansion party where men were charged $1,000 for entry but women were admitted free, but that case did make it to trial.

Trump’s attorney, Jill Martin, argued the golf event did not discriminate against men but was intended to draw attention to breast cancer and encourage women to play golf.

A judge agreed with Trump’s attorney, saying the event did not “perpetuate any kind of stereotype,” and dismissed the case.

President Donald Trump on Monday allowed President-elect Joe Biden's transition to proceed -- while vowing he would never concede.

Despite Trump losing the election, some Trump supporters are refusing to accept the outcome.

One Arizona Republican in Congress, Paul Gosar, drew upon the historical knowledge him learned on his way to becoming a dentist in a bizarre analogy he posted on Twitter.

Gosar suggested the Trump movement would be like an Imperial Japanese soldier in World War II who refused to surrender until 1974.

Neal Katyal predicts law schools will teach a ‘Worst Mistakes in Court’ class on Trump’s ‘pathetic’ 20-day fiasco

Published

on

Prominent lawyer Neal Katyal is best known for having tried over 40 cases before the United States Supreme Court and serving as acting Solicitor General during the Obama administration.

But he also has spent more than two decades as a law professor at Georgetown.

He drew upon all of that experience for a Monday evening appearance on MSNBC's "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell.

"Someday a law school class is going to be called 'The Worst Mistakes in Court' -- and it will be just about these 20 days," Katyal predicted. "Because this legal strategy is so pathetic it makes Trump's coronavirus strategy look competent by contrast."

Trump vows he ‘will never concede’ — in 11 pm conspiracy-filled rant

Published

Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential to President-elect Joe Biden, but is still refusing to concede.

White House aides reportedly convinced him to allow Biden to begin his transition by telling him he did not need to use the word "concede."

But that word appeared to be on his mind late Monday night.

"What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history?" Trump asked while continuing to lie about the election being corrupt.
