Fort Collins and the Rest of Us: 14th Amendment and Topfreedom (via breastsarehealthy)

Disclaimer: I’m not an attorney. But I have some attorneys helping me, and I would like to share what they have taught me this morning about the Fort Collins decision yesterday.

Nutshell: Last year a group of “Free the Nipple” protesters, AKA bare-chested women, appeared in Fort Collins, Colorado, where at the time there were no laws to forbid them from doing so. Shortly thereafter, the city council passed an “emergency” law with language saying men could go bare-chested but women couldn’t. The protesters sued in federal court and a few weeks ago Judge R. Brooke Jackson (a male) issued a temporary injunction against Fort Collins, meaning the town could not enforce the law until a trial had been held.
