Foxy Lady v. City of Providence (2018)
Category: Discrimination Gender Discrimination Free Speech
About this Case:
This is “friend of the court” brief filed in the R.I. Supreme Court, arguing that the Providence Board of Licenses’ revocation of the Foxy Lady’s entertainment license, and the failure to issue a stay of the decision pending full judicial review, violate the club’s First Amendment rights. Our blog post on this ordeal can be found here (The Providence Board of Licenses Comes for the Foxy Lady).
On January 3, 2019, the RI Supreme Court decided to review the case (scheduled for April 2019) and ruled that the Foxy Lady could resume operations in the meantime.
