Ladies Night at Corner Solution

| 1 Comment

Over at Corner Solution, fellow GMU Economics grad student William Butterfield notes that a New Jersey judge has ruled that the narrow commercial benefits of price discrimination in the form of "Ladies Night" "do[es] not override the 'important social policy objective of eradicating discrimination."

Mr.Butterfield aptly replies that "This is obvious judicial lunacy," and supplies us with a short discussion of the clear social benefits of such discrimination.

It's not judicial lunacy; it's legislative lunacy. The decision was idiotic because the law is; it doesn't allow for exceptions-when-we-like-the-outcome-of-the-discrimination. (Which doesn't stop some judges from pretending that it does; see the affirmative action in college admissions cases for an example.)
