Florida Court Upholds Naked Protest

From here, via World Sex News:

ORLANDO, Florida – An appeals court has ruled that women can demonstrate topless as part of a legitimate political protest, striking down the arrest of a woman who has repeatedly flouted laws banning women from publicly going bare breasted.

The Seventh Judicial Circuit Court of Appeals on Oct. 5 upheld a county judge’s opinion that Elizabeth Book could protest topless on the city’s Main Street Bridge.

Book was arrested by Daytona Beach police and fined $253 during Bike Week in March 2004. The city said she violated an ordinance banning public nudity that was passed in 2002 to curb indecency at special events.
