Fang-Face writes "Speaking of Little Sisters, here's a story about the U.S. equivalent in Littleton, Colorado. The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments today to throw out a Denver zoning law that prohibits situating a sex-themed business within five hundred feet of schools or day care centers. Z.J. Gifts opened Christal's in 1999 and went to federal court that same year, arguing that the bookstore not a sex shop because only a portion of its merchandise is adult in nature. The Supreme Court agreed to hear the case last October because different appeals courts have disagreed on the issue.
(Why are such laws a bad thing? Because such laws have been unethically exploited. In North Charleston, South Carolina, which case the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear,
and by the City of New York.)"
