Spokane County Superior Court Enters Injunction Against Spokane Country Club
On July 23, 2014, the Spokane County Superior Court entered an injunction against the Spokane Golf and Country Club in a case brought by Mary Schultz Law on behalf of four women owner/stockholders of that Club.
The injunction now prohibits the Spokane Country Club from providing and allowing services, course access, and benefits to its stockholders based on gender. The injunction orders the Spokane Country Club to immediately eradicate gender based practices and schedules among its shareholders, and it further orders the Club to immediately implement training, policies and practices which will eradicate these gender distinctions among stockholders. Violations of the injunction, including retaliation against women at that Club for opposing gender based practices, are subject to contempt findings and penalties.
This injunction completes a litigation commenced in 2009, which was heard by a jury in early 2013, and which resulted in that jury awarding damages to the four claimant female shareholders of some $579,000. A fee and cost award has also been entered requiring the Club to pay the Plaintiff’s fees and costs of some $750,000.
