New Jersey legislators have decided to bring back Ladies Night to state bars, after it was ruled a form of illegal sexual discrimination.

Bar owners in the state say that their summer was ruined when the state’s director of civil rights ruled in June that a restaurant unlawfully discriminated against men by waiving the $5 cover charge for women and by offering them discounted drinks.

After an uproar from bar owners, the state assembly approved the measure to overturn the ruling by 78 to 0.

While ridiculed throughout the country, legal experts were unanimous that the original decision was legally sound, if politically foolhardy.
