CASE ENTRY

Doe v. Landry

Fifth Circuit (September): A Louisiana law that requires erotic dancers between the ages of 18 and 20 to fully cover their breasts and buttocks is probably unconstitutionally vague. Fifth Circuit (on panel rehearing): Just kidding. Dancers may “want to wear the bare minimum, but the Constitution does not guarantee them that level of specificity.” The authorities can continue enforcing the law while the suit proceeds.
