LA’s “Condoms In Porn” Lawsuit Settled
Guys, this is late breaking but important news.
Attorneys for Vivid Entertainment and the AIDS Healthcare Foundation informed judge last week that they had reached a tentative settlement in a lawsuit regarding the constitutionality of a Los Angeles County law that requires porn actors to wear condoms during sex scenes. As of yet, no details have been released. They first must be approved by the court and must be submitted by March 31.
There are two excellent articles on the subject.
From the immediate outside world looking in, Legal battle over L.A. County’s condom requirement for porn actors coming to a close from the LA Times
The second article is from adult entertainment trade publication Xbiz and goes into detail from the industry perspective looking out. The headline is Vivid, AHF Reach Settlement in Measure B Legal Battle.
But Vivid’s claim that the adult industry already takes adequate steps to protect its performers from STIs, making Measure B unnecessary, became ammunition for AHF President Michael Weinstein and the AHF.
