Federal judge allows transgender artist’s lawsuit against Chicago nudity ordinance
CHICAGO — A federal judge in Chicago has ruled that a transgender artist’s law suit against a Chicago ordinance
From the Associated Press:
The Chicago Daily Law Bulletin reports the ruling rejects a city request to toss the suit. To prevail, Bea Sullivan-Knoff must still prove at a trial that the ordinance violates her constitutional rights and Illinois law.
The Monday ruling says one legitimate question is whether the ordinance is too vague. Sullivan-Knoff argues it doesn’t indicate how police are supposed decide when transgender individuals have female breasts or when someone identifying as male no longer has female breasts. She says the ordinance limits her options about where to perform.
