Nude Dance Ruling

NPR's Legal Affairs Correspondent Nina Totenberg reports on the Supreme Court's latest ruling on nude dancing. It's the second time the Court has addressed the issue of whether local governments can ban the practice. The court voted 7 to 2 to allow bans. Justice Sandra Day O'Connor wrote in the court's main opinion that nude dancing is " expressive conduct" but falls "only within the outer ambit" of the Constitution's first Amendment free-speech protection.
