Appeals court rules nude dancers must cover up

July 1, 2007


— Erotic dancers in adult bars in most parts of Daytona Beach are going to have to wear as much clothing as most people on the beach.

A federal appeals court upheld municipal zoning and nudity ordinances on Thursday after the city and Lollipops Gentlemen's Club made their cases before the court on March 23.

"The bottom line is the 11th Circuit Court (of Appeals) upheld the city's authority to enforce its zoning regulations and public nudity ordinance with regard to the adult entertainment establishments," City Attorney Bob Brown said.

In other words, dancers at adult clubs that serve liquor are required to wear conservative bikinis. G-strings and pasties won't be enough to meet that requirement, the court said.

Both sides were trying to reverse previous rulings.

What the hells the point of this? I don't go to strip bars, but I don't see why they should be legislated so heavily either. Methinks some old men were feeling guilty at being aroused.

"Appeals court rules nude dancers must cover up"

But then they wouldn't be nude dancers, would they?
