Attorney General's News Release

Attorney General Koster applauds Supreme Court decision to uphold law limiting strip clubs

Jefferson City, Mo. – Attorney General Chris Koster said he is pleased with today’s Supreme Court ruling that upholds Missouri’s adult entertainment law that imposes new restrictions on strip clubs.

Koster’s office represented the state in the court proceedings. He said his office has maintained since the legislation was enacted that the new restrictions on the adult entertainment industry are constitutional and should remain the law in the state of Missouri. Koster’s office also prevailed in a lower court ruling on the legislation.

“At the time the General Assembly passed this law in 2010,” Koster said, “there was both state and federal legal precedent upholding provisions similar to those contained in the Missouri law, and a lower court agreed with our arguments. I’m pleased with the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding the law and the will of the General Assembly.”
