Underage strippers sue to dance, claim age law is discriminatory

Weird

RENO, Nv. (CNN) — A group of young strippers is suing Reno, Nevada for the right to dance.

According to the “Reno Gazette Journal,” eight women filed a $15 million lawsuit.

It claims a city ordinance that forbids women under 21 from dancing violates their civil rights.

The plaintiffs are between 18 and 21 years old.

A ninth woman — who is not a dancer — also signed on to the lawsuit.

She claims she should have the right to view topless dancers at an establishment that serves alcohol, just as she has the right to eat at a restaurant that has a bar.

The lawsuit also reportedly claims the ban is discriminatory since male dancers are allowed to work without shirts.

The dancers came up with the $15 million by figuring there are about 100 underage dancers in Reno making $50,000-$100,000 dollars over three years.
