Florida strip clubs sue over raised danger age limit

CRAZY HORSE III JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Adult clubs in one Florida city are suing over a new law that raised the minimum age for strippers from 18 to 21. The law in Jacksonville was enacted March 5 in a bid to reduce human trafficking. But lawyers for the clubs contend in a federal lawsuit that it violates the First Amendment by restricting the ability of performers to dance. The Florida Times-Union reported that after the law was signed, the clubs were prevented from using close to 100 dancers under age 21 during a two-week period. The city’s attorneys have not yet responded to the lawsuit. (Copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.)
