Fans of tan all-over don't cover up yet

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (AP) - August 28, 2008

An Orange County judge has pulled the plug on a crackdown on nude sunbathers at San Onofre State Beach.

Superior Court Judge Sheila Fell ruled yesterday that police can't charge the naked people unless a private citizen complains first.

That had been the policy since the late '70s.

But officials said they would ban nudity after Labor Day, because of complaints about lewd behavior.

With the judge's ruling in place, now the nudists just need to wear sunscreen.
