Attorney General Terry Goddard announced that the Phoenix (Ariz.) Country Club has agreed to drop all sex-based discrimination in its dining facilities.
According to the Associated Press, the state’s lawsuit, filed last September, alleges that the club violated a state civil rights act by refusing to serve women at its Men’s Grill. It also said the club retaliated against two members when they voiced opposition to the policy and threatened them with suspension or expulsion if they sued the club.
The club has agreed to open its dining facilities to members, their families and guests regardless of sex. Goddard says club members will vote on whether to change the name of the Men’s Grill.
