9th Circuit Upholds Adult Business Zoning Ordinance

XBiz reports:

SAN DIEGO — In a court ruling of enormous proportions, a federal appeals court has sided with San Diego County over an ordinance regulating the operation of adult entertainment businesses and requiring them to move to industrial zones.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday affirmed a lower court’s grant of summary judgment against Déjà Vu and its landlord on their claim that the ordinance violated a state law requiring ordinances to be consistent with a county’s general plan.

The 9th Circuit said that plaintiffs had failed to raise the claim in their complaint and that San Diego County’s ordinance is constitutional.
