ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CBS)An Atlantic City strip club operator has gone to federal court, saying his brochures were improperly removed from rest stops along the Garden State Parkway and the Atlantic City Expressway.

Anthony Ariemma, owner of the “Bare Exposure” strip club, says his brochures had been in highway rest stop racks for a year without issue.   The brochures, which advertise “beautiful naked girls” and “all nude couch dances,” had been displayed at Garden State Parkway and Atlantic City Expressway rest stops dominated by fliers or attractions such as museums and amusement parks.

But last fall, after service area operator HMS Host rejected a new brochure that showed one woman kissing another’s neck, the old strip club brochures showing just a woman’s face were removed from the racks.

Bare Exposure’s attorney, Mike Daily, says that’s unconstitutional.

“The fact that the government allows a private entity to administer what literature is distributed doesn’t remove this from the strictures of the First Amendment,” he tells KYW Newsradio.

The suit was filed December 28th against HMS Host and the authorities that own the Garden State Parkway and Atlantic City Expressway.

HMS Host did not immediately respond to our request for comment.
