Discrimination settlement over free floppy sun hatsA California lawyer has won a $510,000 discrimination settlement from the Oakland Athletics because the team gave free floppy sun hats to female fans to promote breast cancer awareness. Thanks to Alfred Rava, who has filed numerous similar suits in the past, male fans who attended the Mother’s Day game can claim a share of the judgment by calling a toll-free number, though the operator on that line says, “I haven’t taken a single call so far, and I’m here just about every day.”
