Adult Industry to File Suit Against LA County Over Measure B
On November 6, voters of Los Angeles County passed Measure B, an ill-conceived law that makes it mandatory for adult actors to wear lab coats, goggles and gloves as well as condoms while shooting adult films in the County. The law was funded solely by AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF).
"The industry has organized a team of highly respected attorneys to protect our First Amendment rights," said Steven Hirsch, founder/co-Chairman of Vivid Entertainment. "I am confident that we will prevail and ultimately save LA County millions of dollars as well as save thousands of jobs. As an industry we are united in this effort and look forward to our day in court."
Industry attorneys Paul Cambria of Lipsitz Green Scime Cambria; H. Louis Sirkin of Santen Hughes; and Bob Corn-Revere of Davis Wright Tremaine will represent the industry in the US District Court for the Central District of California.
