Saga of the ordinance continues. I was told to be in Judge Maurer's
court room at 9:00 am sharp. The Plaintiff, PAPA (Portland area
Privacy Alliance), wanted me to testify.
AM, things began. Our attorney, Brad Woodworth opened up his freedom
of expression speech and the "defendant" quickly shot off their
rebuttal about how much crime is attributed to adult businesses--80%.
(This ridiculous myth, with no substantive proof whatsoever, was
reiterated like a mantra to the judge. And these are supposed
to be intelligent people?)
the testimonials were given for our side--the plaintiff. A lingerie
model spoke first, clearly and softly, about being a stripper
and a lingerie model. She spoke of how men wanted some sort of
acceptance from the woman--someone to talk to as well as seduce
them and turn them on. The cross examination's focus was mainly
on how many men asked her to have sex with them.
it was my turn. Our attorney asked about the role play (as a Dominatrix)
and more elaborate details of the theatrical drama that took place.

service operator was next. She spoke in a very shy and timid voice
when our attorney asked the details of her job and the speech
that took place between a client and her. She was apprehensive
and embarrassed to explain the stripping and the masturbation
all, it was a long morning and we adjourned for lunch, to return
by 1:30. As I left the building, I bumped into Vice Detective
Ed Brumfield--a tall and powerful man, with a kindness, as well,
about him. I put up my dukes, as a playful gesture, to say come
on, put 'em up. I smiled, he smiled. He said I shouldn't take
this so personally. I told him I have to, that I will be a dominatrix
long after he and Mayor Katz are gone.
first witness was a female police officer. She went off about
all the problems and crimes that went on in the sex industry.
After she was done with her testimonial our attorney asked the
officer if she had a degree in statistics. She replied that she
had been in a Masters program involving statistics. He then asked
her if specific statistical tests had been taken for her to come
up with the conclusion that 80% of the sex industry was involved
with criminal activity. She said she had no basis for that. The
attorney asked the judge to dismiss the testimonial because it
had no grounds. The Judge replied that she wanted to hear all
the testimonial before she came to a decision on that. More witnesses
including one former escort convicted of prostitution and horror
stories of two evil men abducting underrage girls and forcing
them into prostitution, none of which happened in Oregon or had
anything to do with our sex industry here, and the defense rested.
that evening on the news, they said the judge would make her decision
Wednesday, March 1st . The saga continues...
Area Privacy Alliance has won the preliminary injunction, and
thus the entire court case against the City of Portland over their
"Escort & Lingerie Modeling Ordinance." Circuit Court Judge
Jean Maurer concluded in her decision on Wednesday, March 1st,
"The ordinance as written is content-based and therefore, under
the holdings of the appellate cases in this state, impermissibly
burdens expression under Article I, section 8 of the Oregon Constitution.
its language is unconstitutionally overbroad and vague. In light
of these conclusions, it is unnecessary to address the plaintiff's
remaining challenges to the ordinance."
