The U.S. Supreme Court won’t hear a case challenging an Alabama law that bars the sale of sex toys.
Sherri Williams, who owns Pleasures boutiques in two Alabama cities, had contended the law violated the right to sexual privacy, the Associated Press reports. An injunction that had banned enforcement of the law could be lifted within days, the state attorney general told the Huntsville Times.
Williams told AP she will file a new lawsuit challenging the ban that is based on her right to free speech. "My motto has been they are going to have to pry this vibrator from my cold, dead hand. I refuse to give up," she said.
