Sixth Circuit Tosses Strip Club's Lawsuit Against Restrictions on Billboards, Already Ruled on the Issue

Court isn't sure why the lawsuit was even brought up


A Michigan strip club "misses the net and the rim" by challenging billboard restrictions that the state already muzzled as unconstitutional, the 6th Circuit ruled.

Adopted in 2011, the laws barred sexually oriented businesses from using any images in signs and off-site billboards, but a federal judge in Detroit enjoined the legislation after two affected businesses filed suit. Conceding defeat, Gov. Rick Snyder and Attorney General Bill Schuette stipulated to a final judgment that permanently enjoined the laws as facially unconstitutional.
