    Court: No nudes in Daytona

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Erotic dancers in adult bars in most parts of this Spring Break city 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.

    A district court ruled in January 2006 that Daytona Beach's nudity laws were unconstitutional because they violated the right to free speech, and dancers at adult clubs had been going nude ever since.

    Lollipops officials wanted the appeals court to reverse a court ruling from December 2004 that upheld the city's zoning laws, which regulate where adult businesses can operate.

    Lollipops lost that one, too.

    An attorney for Lollipops said they were prepared to take the case to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    "I don't think it means anything," said lawyer Brett Hartley of Daytona Beach. "We don't see (this) ruling as a major setback. This is just part of the dance."

    Never could understand peoples hatred towards titty bars.

    If you don't like nudie bars, don't go to them.

    in Winona where I grew up. She tried to get an ordinance passed to ban women from wearing two piece bikinis on the beach. She wanted all women to wear one piece suits on the beaches.
