A strip club sued Michigan Governor Rick Snyder in federal court over a new state law that bans adult businesses from putting anything but words, numbers and a logo on signs and billboards.
Lawyers for the Penthouse Club in Detroit, argue the
restrictions are unconstitutional and asked a judge to issue a temporary restraining order against enforcement of the regulations.
Adult businesses can be fined up to $10,000 for violations under the law that took effect last week.
only affects adult businesses and requires logos on billboards to be registered as federal trademarks, which have their own restrictions on sexually explicit material. Former Governor Jennifer Granholm signed the bills into law in December, but they did
not take effect until last week. Violators are subject to fines of $10,000 a day, and revenue from scofflaws would go into a fund for public libraries.
