FEDERAL JUDGE cool with strippers under age of 21

Federal Judge says Strippers under age 21 can CONSTITUTIONALLY dance.

You read that right.

Federal Judge Barbier was forced to rule on a new law passed by the Louisiana legislature that would prevent strippers under the age of 21 in clubs that serve alcohol.

The law was supposed to go into effect on October 1, 2016, but three strippers in Baton Rouge and New Orleans filed a lawsuit against the State of Louisiana for the “right to bear breasts.”

Judge Barbier, in a 41 page opinion GRANTED the strippers’ motion for preliminary injunction, which prohibits the ATC from enforcing the under 21 ban for strippers if and until the Court makes a final ruling.

This comes straight out of a law school hypothetical…or NOT! But it is a great evaluation of Constitutional law, the standards applied to causes of action and a reminder that not all actions by the legislature are valid or legal.

The Judge acknowledged that the act of nude dancing is a protected speech under the Frist Amended of the United States Constitution. 

Judge Barbier found that the strippers showed that the law (Act No. 395) was overbroad and vague and warranted a preliminary injunction.

Let me know your thoughts.  Do you agree with this ruling?

Be great!
