Antidiscrimination Law Shuts Down Nude Dancers

Los Angeles, California, city officials shut down an adult nightclub's main feature, a shower enclosure for nude dancers, because it has no wheelchair access.

The city's Department of Building and Safety's Disabled Access Division claims the club discriminates against the handicapped, denying them an equal opportunity to work as nude dancers, according to Reuters news service.

Patrons of the Odd Ball Cabaret could previously pay $20 to watch a nude dancer take a shower for five minutes.

More than likely, the use of the antidiscrimination law was just an excuse to stop a legal, but politically unpopular, form of expression.
