Being an Oakland A's season ticket holder, I received a letter in the mail from the Superior Court of Alameda County concerning a suit brought against the A's & Macy's
Seems that the two parties offended Mr. Rava's s sensibilities when on May 8, 2004 in addition to paying tribute to all "moms" in attendance, sponsoring a breast cancer awareness and fundraising program, free mammograms to underserved women in the Bay area including a pre-game 5krun in which all proceeds were donated to the Carol Franc Buck Breast Cancer Fund had the audacity to give reversible bucket hats to the first 7,500 women.
Tha last act frosted Mr. Rava's hide to the extent that he filed a discrimination suit against the A's & Macy's.
A settlement of $510,000 was reached....$260,000 which wnet to the attorneys. the rest will be divided up between 2,500 men who enroll in the settlement. You have to be able to prove 1. you are a male and 2. you attended the game.
"The "Net Settlement Amount" distributable to eligible Class members is expressly set at the specific amount of $250,000. The Net Settlement Amount is comprised of $100 in total value per timely and valid claimant up to a maximum of 2,500 men allocated and paid as follows : $50 in cash, payable first form any unpaid amount of the $260,00 described above and thereafter on 50/50 basis form the A's and macy's (i.e. $25 from the A's and $25 from Macy's and (ii) $50 in script ($25 in A's tickets on a 2 for1 basis and $25 macy's discount coupons "
Whatever that means.
You have to prove that you were one of the fist 7,500 fans to arrive at the game.
