Attorney misses mark on rights

December 2008
Las Vegas Business Press (10712186);12/22/2008, Vol. 25 Issue 51, p24
The author reflects on the ruling of the Nevada Equal Rights Commission that favors civil rights attorney Todd Phillips. The commission declared that Las Vegas Athletic Clubs could no longer offer free enrollment to women only. With his victory, Philipps is said to pursue his quest of eliminating in Nevada sex-based and presumably age-based pricing. It was said that pricing schemes are promotions and deals designed to boost business and none of these promotions are discriminatory. The author suggested that Philip should find a more worthwhile crusade.
