CASE ENTRY

American Entertainers, LLC v. City of Rocky Mount, North Carolina

On receiving an application to operate a strip club, Rocky Mount, N.C.’s police chief must review “the entire body of municipal, state, federal, and common law” within 15 days so as to determine whether the applicant is in compliance. Fourth Circuit: Unconstitutional prior restraint. That gives the chief too much discretion.
