S.D.Cal.: San Diego strip club inspection ordinance violates 1A; 4A deferred for more development

San Diego has an ordinance permitting inspections of strip clubs. After an “inspection” with armed officers with bulletproof vests to photograph nearly nude dancers ostensibly to log their tattoos, the court finds the ordinance violates the First Amendment because it permits harassment of the clubs and dancers. That issue is resolved for the rest of the case. Plaintiff’s Fourth Amendment claim in the opposition of a consent claim is denied until there is a better developed record. Doe v. City of San Diego, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 43649 (S.D. Cal. Mar. 16, 2018).*
