> 1. The Court just can't get enough on the zoning of smut - but then
> who can? The Court today granted in 00-799, Los Angeles, CA v. Alameda
> Books, Inc. The case presents the question whether a zoning ordinance
> prohibits operation of more than one adult entertainment business at a
> single location is invalid because the city did not study the negative
> effects of such combinations of adult businesses, but rather relied on
> judicially approved statutory precedent from other jurisdictions. (To the
> extent that the Court's own precedents provide an answer - which they
> necessarily - last Term's Erie v. Pap's AM suggests the answer is "yes."
> The Ninth Circuit, however, said "no.") This is the Court's third
> smut-zoning case in as many Terms (although in fairness to them, one of
> those was DIGged short of resolution on the merits).
