Bosom bunnies banned!
Several female beachgoers in Ocean City, Maryland, have filed a lawsuit in Federal District Court alleging that an Emergency Ordinance, which specifically bans female bare-chestedness and permits male bare-chestedness, violates the Equal Peeptection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
The lawsuit seeks temporary and permanent injunctions precluding the enforcement of the ordinance. Pictured are the plaintiffs (décolletage disguised for censors) on the beach, with Ocean City police on their way to enforce the Emergency Ordinance. Peep the complaint
