Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Why we love Judge Pryor.

For proof that the Senate made the right choice in confirming William Pryor, look no further than Zibtluda, L.L.C. v. Gwinnet County, No. 03-15685 (11th Cir. Jun. 9, 2005), at 4:

The 2001 Ordinance regulates comprehensively the operation of adult entertainment businesses in Gwinnett County. Establishments governed by the 2001 Ordinance include those where persons perform either fully or partially nude; where more than ten feet of floor space or five percent of net sales are derived from the sale of adult magazines, books, or movies; and adult movie theaters, minitheaters, video stores, arcades, hotels, and motels. 2001 Ordinance § 86-71. The 2001 Ordinance, in other words, regulates commercial entertainment akin to the "Huggin' and a kissin', dancin' and a lovin', wearin' next to nothing" that the B-52s famously described as occurring in a "funky old shack." The B-52s, Love Shack, on Cosmic Thing (Reprise Records 1989).
The Court, in an opinion authored by Judge Pryor, held that the ordinance survived Plaintiff's challenge. The challenge was brought after the ordinance became an obstacle to Plaintiff's plan to open up multiple sex shops under the name "The Love Shack." Opinion here.
