Hoping to wipe out the same sort of discrimination that blacks once suffered in the South (his legal team's words, not mine), San Diego attorney Alfred Nava is at it again. This time, he is targeting Mother's Day giveaways at major league baseball games. Nava is the same character who made it harder for guys to get lucky by ending Ladies' Night discounts in San Diego area bars three years ago.
The thing I hate about stories like this are that people use them to bolster their belief that all lawyers suck. Nobody reads a story about a butcher cutting a romantic rival into pieces and says "Those butchers are dangerous. We should put them out of business." But when a story about some jerk suing over Mother's Day giveaways hits the press, you hear lots of people say things like "Attorneys are all assholes. Just look at this Alfred Nava guy." It really isn't fair. There's only one guy out there doing this. Most of us are perfectly okay fellas.
