Over at OnPoint, a legal issues blog from the Courthouse News Service, Matthew Heller argues that Duncanville's gonna have a very hard time swallowing The Cherry Pit. As in:

Even if Duncanville can defend the scope of its ordinance, it still is unlikely to show that its interest in prohibiting sex clubs outweighs the liberty interest in private sexual conduct established by the U.S. Supreme Court in Lawrence v. Texas, 539 U.S. 558 (2003).

Heller provides Jim Trulock's suit against Duncanville, for those who need a little light reading today. In related news, I'd never been to the Cherry Pit's Web site before -- swear -- and, like, who wouldn't wanna fight for their right to party there? Looks ... clean. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
