JUNE A.C.E. NEWS

ATTENTION:
EXOTIC DANCE CLUB OWNER / OPERATORS
YOUR BUSINESS IS UNDER ATTACK!
 
In the not-so-distant future there will be an issue put in front of the Oregon Supreme Court regarding an ordinance written by the City Council of Nyssa, Oregon. The ordinance, pertaining to Miss Sally's Gentlemen's Club, states that all entertainers must stay a minimum distance of 10 feet away from patrons while performing. In May of 1988 when Miss Sally's was established there were no existing Nyssa city ordinances regarding exotic dance clubs, therefore the business began operating using guidelines set forth by the State of Oregon. After the ordinance was passed, citations were issued to the club owners and the local courts ruled in favor of the city. The lower courts rulings have now been appealed to the Oregon Supreme Court. With the brief history of this issue out of the way, let me explain how this will affect you and your business:
Should the Supreme Court rule in favor of the city it will set a precedent in the State of Oregon. This means ANY CITY OR COUNTY in Oregon will be able to pass ordinances directed toward your adult business and the way it is conducted. The club owners will have little if any recourse. Unhappy patrons will result in lost revenue. The problem may be on your doorstep right now (see the following article at right).
Should we win in the Supreme Court, nothing will change, if we lose it will affect us all. If you wish more information, please feel free to contact Laura Graser, Attorney at Law at 503-287-7036.
If you wish to help with financial assistance you can make a donation to Miss Sally's Legal Defense Fund, C/O Laura Graser, Atty., PO Box 12441, Portland, Oregon 97212.
Thank you for your professional courtesy and we look forward to your support. --Miss Sally's Gentlemen's Club
 
City may support Nyssa
PORTLAND TRIBUNE
May 13, 2003
 
The City Council will consider asking the Oregon Supreme Court to give it the authority to regulate where nude dancing clubs and other adult businesses can be located in Portland. The council will vote Wednesday on a resolution -- submitted by Commissioner Jim Francesconi -- directing the city attorney to support the city of Nyssa's attempt to ban adult businesses in a case before the Oregon Supreme Court. All briefs are due June 24. "Commissioner Francesconi believes it's important for local communities to be able to regulate adult businesses to protect neighborhoods," said Francesconi aide Michael Harrison. In 1987, the state Supreme Court ruled that the Oregon Constitution prevents cities from treating adult businesses differently than any other business. But the Oregon Court of Appeals recently upheld a Nyssa ordinance regulating nude dancers, arguing that the Constitution does not, in fact, prevent cities from treating adult businesses differently than other businesses. The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case, giving it the opportunity to reverse the 1987 decision.
