Recently, adult business attorneys, assisted by academic experts, have begun raising new challenges that target the claim that local governments regulate adult businesses to control their secondary effects. This article discusses the nature of these challenges, analyzes how they've fared in the courts, and suggests how local governments should respond when faced with these new claims.
