The U.S. Supreme Court let stand another 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling, thus one striking down a zoning ordinance aimed at adult businesses. The 11th Circuit said the City of Jacksonville, Florida, impinged on businesses' free speech by requiring so-called lingerie shops — actually nightclubs with nude dancers — to get a special exemption before they could open in any but two locations in the city. The 11th Circuit said Jacksonville's zoning law gave city officials too much discretion and allowed for indefinite delays. The city argued that it was only attempting to preserve residents' quality of life. The case is Jacksonville v. Lady J. Lingerie, 99-356.
