No-touch law upheld in Ohio

June 24, 2009 5:03:39 AM PDT
Look but don't touch.

That's the gist of a ruling from a federal judge in Cleveland.

The judge has upheld Ohio's "no-touch" law for strip clubs.

The law bans physical contact between strippers and their customers or between the strippers themselves.

A trade group that represents adult businesses challenged the no-touch law, saying it could even be applied to ballet dancers.

But the judge ruled the law doesn't violate free speech or other constitutional rights.

No reaction yet from the club owners.
