Suit Against Measure B (LOS ANGELES, CA) -- A group of adult industry leaders announced today their intent to file a law suit soon against Los Angeles County over Measure B.

On November 6 voters of Los Angeles 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. 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," said Steven Hirsch, founder/co-Chairman of Vivid Entertainment.

Industry attorneys Paul Cambria of Lipsitz Green Scime Cambria, 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.

The attorneys plan to challenge the law on the question of whether the County has jurisdiction to regulate adult production on performer health and safety, as these issues would typically fall under CalOSHA and thus State regulation. Additionally, attorneys plan to challenge the law on Constitutional grounds.

"This law will waste taxpayer dollars and compromise the effective performer health protocols already in place," said Diane Duke CEO for the Free Speech Coalition who is helping coordinate the litigation. "We are making a broad appeal for donations to consumers to protect the content they enjoy; to performers, to protect their right to perform without the absurd regulation that will require them to wear a virtual hazmat suit; to producers and directors who face jail time for any noncompliance of this ill-conceived law; and finally to anyone who opposes government overreach and government waste. AHF has threatened to replicate this effort nationwide—we have to stop them in their tracks."

Donations can be sent to FSC-Measure B Litigation (100% of the donation will go to the litigation) Po Box 10480 Canoga Park, CA 91309 or donate online at www.freespeechcoalition.com.

The Free Speech Coalition is the national trade organization to the adult entertainment industry. Its mission is to lead, protect and support the growth and well-being of the adult entertainment community.
