A couple of items in the news. First, a provocative piece from the talented David Hudson of the First Amendment Center, entitled “Obscenity online: Do we need a national standard?

Second, the Iowa Court of Appeals delivered this decision yesterday. Iowa charged Clarence Judy, owner of a strip club in Hamburg, Iowa, with three counts of public indecent exposure in violation of Iowa Code sections 728.5 (3), (4), and (6). At trial, Judy moved for a judgment of acquittal, alleging that his establishment fell into an exemption for “theaters.”  The district court agreed. And the State’s appeal was … dismissed. News coverage is available at How Appealing here. (HT: Howard Bashman).
