Outlawing strip joints illegal

Strip clubs cannot be outlawed but there can be restrictions to discourage

them from coming here.

That's according to Erik Kelly...an expert from Ball State University.

Kelly this week spoke to La Porte County officials who are in the process

of drafting zoning laws that address strip clubs...

Kelly says whatever is in the books needs to be fair or the county can be sued

and lose in court.

That would likely result in the county having to pay the defendant's legal bills

and being unable restrict the operations of a strip club whatsoever.

The laws are being drafted in response to a strip club that is looking to go up

on U-S 35 just south of U-S 20.

A vote could be taken at the November 27th meeting of the La Porte County

Planning Commission.
