I take my constitutional rights very seriously. For example, I am more aware of first amendment rights after blogging for so long. And who hasn't said "thank goodness" for that Fifth Amendment a time or three after a hazy Friday night? But I've noticed that the contours (oh, the foreshadowing) of rights seem to get tested quite frequently in areas that many consider to be unsavory. Thus, it is with great sadness that I report to you that in Coe v. City of San Diego (Sept. 28, 2016), the Court of Appeal (Fourth Appellate District, Division One), held that application of San Diego's six-foot rule was not arbitrary and capricious on the facts before it, affirming the revocation of a permit held by appellant Suzanne Coe. What, you ask, is the six-foot rule? I am glad you asked. The six-foot rule states that it is unlawful for a responsible person to allow a nude person within six feet of a patron at a nude entertainment business. In a nutshell, Coe's establishment violated the six-foot rule habitually since 2006. San Diego finally pulled the plug, revoking her permit to operate. I am not going to explain operation of the no-touch and no-fondling rules. And I used to think that being a progressive, liberal state meant that everyone gets the freedom to express themselves however they want.
