SAN ANTONIO -- It will be awhile longer before female adult entertainers have to cover up more of their bodies.
The City of San Antonio and 13 owners of adult entertainment clubs faced off in a federal courtroom this morning. The owners are fighting a new ordinance that would force the entertainers to wear bikini tops, instead of pasties. The city passed the ordinance in December and it was supposed to go into effect February 4. But the owners sued, claiming the ordinance infringes on their "expression activity of the performers."
U.S. Judge Fred Biery said today it will take a couple of weeks before he decides if the ordinance restricts the entertainer's First Amendment rights.
DISCUSS: Should adult entertainers be required to cover up more? Why or why not?
