Alfred G. Rava, You’re a Douchewaffle

Here I was thinking that I was the slime of the earth. After all I’d step over an homeless invalid if there was only one free sample left at Whole Foods. But Al Rava takes the cake. This wart on a sick elephants ass is suing the Oakland Athletics because he didn’t get a free promo item when he went to the ball park last month.

I think we’ve all be there, at one point or another, we’ve all gone to a game (or other event) where a promotional item was handed out to the first (insert amount here) guests. When you got there after they were out of stock, you may have been a little upset but you got over it and continued on with your event visit. But Mr. Rava was not having that. He was really pissed that he didn’t get his promo item when he went to the ball game in Oakland on May 8, 2004.

Hey Blogerman, wasn’t that Mothers Day 2004?

Yes, young reader it was.

But why would this guy want a Mother’s Day Promotion?

Well, Mr. Rava was really digging all the women (first 7,500) who were sporting their free floppy, plaid sun-hats. He must have thought it would go great with his fishnet stockings and leather gloves. Rava claims it was a fishing hat.

Look this whole thing is making me ill just thinking about it. Bottom line is Rick Riley said it much better in today’s column (Thanks to my Former Mistress for the link)

This guy is even lower then Roy Pearson, Jr. (the former DC lawyer who sued a dry cleaner for $54 million over his lost pants), and based on the fact that truly, NOBODY LIKES A JERK, we here at NBLAJ request your assistance in making sure this guy get’s his comeuppance.

Please take the time to contact the following agencies and complain about his actions:

Do in the nice way, contact the California Bar Association: 1-800-843-9053 (toll free in California) or 213-765-1200 (from outside California). You can also fill out their online complaint form.

Or you can do it in the Bloggerman way: call his offices, e-mail him, spam him, and overall make his professional life a living hell. He is scum, and should be disbarred immediately.

Nobody complained when women sued to get into all male clubs. This is the same legal principal - it is discrimination based on sex.

Feel free to complain to the CA bar assoc., they won't do anything - he is legally correct.

its MORAL principal more than anything else. i mean, the douchbag is technically correct, but he completely violated the "spirit of the law"; its original intention when first enacted. He's taking advantage of the Unruh act for his OWN finance benefit. If he believes its so unjust, he should be donating his 'winnings' to civil rights groups.

CALIFORNIA'S UNRUH CIVIL RIGHTS ACT (ENACTED IN 1959 AND AMENDED LAST YEAR) PROVIDES:

"All persons within the jurisdiction of this state are free and equal, and no matter what their sex, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, disability, medical condition, marital status, or sexual orientation are entitled to the full and equal accommodations, advantages, facilities, privileges, or services in all business establishments of every kind whatsoever."

By the letter of the law, he is within his right. However, like everyone else has stated, ethically and morally, he's, well, a douchebag. Even lawyers, although they seldmonly hold up to it, do have to hold themselves up to certain ethical and moral standards. Also, recently reported in a bay area newspaper today, this is not the first time he's done this. According to the article, he "has initiated similar lawsuits against the Padres and Angels." And people wonder why lawyers get such a bad rap! hmm..maybe because of douchebags like Rava.

When the douche won his case, the judge should have inserted a stipulation that since he wasted the judges, courts, and peoples time and money, he should have to wear the stupid floppy hat for the rest of his life. There is special little place in hell for douche bags, and he will denizen #1.

FYI: The California Court of appeal just shot down another frivolous suit by Rava. Apparently he sued Bank of America because they only ask for social security numbers from U.S. citizens. Court through out the suit because that's what Federal Law required. Apparently B of A was not required to break the law because Rava and his client (William Howe) didn't like the law.

It won't do any good contacting the California Bar because Rava has successfully worked with the California Governor, Legislature, Attorney General, Department of Fair Employment & Housing, and ABC in ending hundreds of sex-based promotions across the state that treat male and female patrons unequally, such as Ladies' Day or Ladies' Night promotions. Heck, he even took a Ladies' Night case to the California Supreme Court, which unanimously ruled for Rava. Lastly, this pesky fact was omitted from thi post - the judge in the A's case unsurprisingly ruled in Rava's favor finding that the A's promotion violated a host of anti-discrimination statutes.
