According to the lawsuit, the man and his friend were denied Shlesinger’s comedy show in November, which as billed as “Girls Night with Iliza – No Boys Allowed”. Apparently, they paid for the show but were denied entrance by The Coronet Theatre and offered a refund. Thus, the lawsuit was filed on the grounds of a 1985 California Supreme Court Ruling finding that “ladies night violate the Unruh Civil Rights Act, which says that people in the state are “free and equal” regardless of gender, sex, race, religion and sexual orientation, among other identities. Shlesinger has yet to comment on the matter.
