SF nudists filing class action suit against City over nudity ban

Attorney Christina DiEdoardo

San Francisco nudists have started a Rally.org fundraiser to retain attorney Christina DiEdoardo to file a class action suit against the city and city officials to block the proposed ban on nudity. Last month, Christina DiEduardo wrote a blog post titled, Why No City Ordinance is Needed to Ban Public Nudity in San Francisco. The Rally.org page states that DiEdoardo will be taking the case at a discounted rate detailing,

"Attorney, Christina DiEdoardo, is taking on this case at much less than normal professional rates because she believes the issue involved is an important one involving political free speech and the improper criminalization of harmless behavior by unprincipled prudes and attention-seeking politicians."

Just in case you are new here, the nudists have caught the attention of those in our neighborhood and those at City Hall that do not care for their increased presence around the Castro. Castro's District 8 Supervisor, Scott Wiener, has put forth legislation to ban nudity throughout the city. The legislation has been approved by one committee and is moving on to the full board for final approval. The nudists have already put together a protest opposing the legislation and are planning for another this Wednesday at City Hall.
