Woman sues Avis because she didn't get discount rates given to two LGBT groups she doesn't belong to

SAN DIEGO -- In a federal class action, a woman claims Avis Rent A Car violated her civil rights by offering discounted rates to gay and lesbian customers, but not to her.

Lynn Evenchik of Pima County, Arizona, says she paid more than $300 for a 1-week car rental from an Avis outlet at San Diego International Airport.

Evenchik says she could have got a discount if she belonged to the Gay and Lesbian Travel Association or the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.

She is not, though, so she seeks an injunction and damages under California's Unruh Civil Rights Act.

Evenchik filed a class action "on behalf of consumers who have suffered from this illegal and unfair business practice."
