New York City’s 2001 ordinance regulating adult uses has been the subject of litigation for more than 15 years. In September, the Court of Appeals put an apparent end to the litigation by denying reargument of its June decision upholding the ordinance. For the People Theaters of N.Y., Inc. v. City of New York, 29 NY3d 340, rearg. den 29 NY3d 1115. Unless the United States Supreme Court intervenes, the court’s analysis should make it significantly easier for New York municipalities to defend adult use ordinances against First Amendment attack.
