This is a class action on behalf of female exotic dancers and female patrons of adult interactive cabarets (strip clubs) who are between 18 and 21 years of age.
The Plaintiffs claim violations of their civil rights and violations of their First Amendment rights including violation of equal protection under the law and discrimination due to their age and gender. A copy of the Complaint can be viewed here. Plaintiffs claims are based on the City of Reno’s requirements that any strip club that serves alcohol must bar dancers who are between 18 and 21 years of age from lawfully dancing as strippers, but the regulations do not bar male dancers from the same. In addition, female patrons who wish to view performances at lawfully licensed strip cubs and who are between 18 and 21 years of age are also barred from such performances, even though the City of Reno does not bar patrons between 18 and 21 from attending other venues that serve alcohol.
If you are a female between 18 and 21 years of age and can no longer work as a stripper or if you wish to view performances at adult interactive cabarets that serve alcohol but may no longer do so, please contact Thierman Buck, LLP immediately to discuss your rights.
