  • US Supreme Court will not hear Ocean City's Topless Ban Lawsuit

    The plaintiffs' petition to the U.S. Supreme Court in a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Ocean City's topless ordinance has been denied.

    Filed in December, the petition asked the nation's highest court to review an Aug. 4 federal appeals court ruling that upheld as constitutional Ocean City's ordinance banning women from going topless on the beach.

    The petition argued "the ordinance codifies longstanding discriminatory and sexist ideology."

    I suppose the Supreme Court views this issue as a bit too risky. It seems the courts are likely to rule at some point in the future that the government has no compelling reason to define a beach dress code; however, that would be certain to result in a lot of hate and discontent among conservatives.
