more An online dating service can’t charge higher rates to customers over 30 even though they might be able to afford it, a state appeals court ruled Monday.
The dating service, Tinder Plus, offers a basic online product without charge, but added a premium service in 2015 that charged .99 a month to customers over 30 and .99 or .99 for younger customers.
In Monday’s ruling, Currey noted that Tinder’s policy would “result in older individuals who earn less than some younger users being charged more than twice what those younger users must pay” for the same service.
And he said Tinder’s argument could be used to justify higher prices “in even the most essential areas of commerce — such as grocery shopping, gasoline purchases, etc.” Currey said, however, that another state appeals court had read the law differently: a San Francisco panel that upheld a luxury health club’s discount prices for 18- to 29-year-olds in 2015, on the grounds that members of that age group generally have less income than older adults.

The court noted past decisions that upheld other types of age-based price differentials, like movie-theater discounts for children and senior citizens, or a bank program that offered higher interest rates on deposits by seniors.
In 2012, they released compilations of their You Tube cover songs in the 16-song albums (2012), through Slapdash Records.In contrast, the court cited the state Supreme Court’s 1985 ruling, by then-Chief Justice Rose Bird, that struck down “Ladies’ Night” discounts at bars and car washes as unlawful sex discrimination.The court also noted a 1982 ruling by the state’s high court saying a landlord could not refuse to rent apartments to families with minor children, a refusal based on the landlord’s stated preference for peace and quiet.The company said its research showed that younger customers had less money and were unlikely to enroll without discounts.Some age-based price differentials may be justified by social policies or economic realities, like movie discounts for children or seniors, said the Second District Court of Appeal in Los Angeles.
