In December 2008, Partners John Golper and Eric Schwettmann and Senior Counsel John Manier obtained summary judgment in Pizarro v. Anheuser-Busch, Inc., Bacardi U.S.A., Inc., etc. (Los Angeles Superior Court case no. JCCP 4505). The plaintiff claimed that she was subjected to age discrimination under the California Unruh Act on “Customer Appreciation Day” at Bear Valley Mountain Ski Resort when she was forced to purchase a ski lift ticket and adults over the age of 21 were not. Anheuser-Busch, Inc. and Bacardi U.S.A., Inc. were alleged to have “aided or incited” this promotion. The court found that the undisputed material facts established that the promotion was based on legitimate, non-discriminatory factors and therefore was not a violation of law.
