Is nude lewd?

College student Elizabeth Burke says she may have been nude -- but not lewd.

The Penn State student is fighting a charge of open lewdness for running in the annual spring streak.

The late-night unofficial naked dash ushers in finals.

A state district judge ruled this week that Burke must go to trial on the charge.

Burke's lawyer argues the crime of open lewdness requires an offended victim.

The lawyer says the 1,000 people who watched the naked runners knew what to expect.
