Supreme Court will not hear “Pole Tax” Case

The Texas Tribune is reporting (“U.S. Supreme Court Won’t Hear Strip Club Fee Case“) that the US. Supreme Court will not hear a challenge to the $5-per-patron strip club tax that Texas created in 2007. Strip clubs had appealed the case on First Amendment grounds.

Exactly how the state of Texas plans on drawing the line between “adult” entertainment suitable for “sin” taxes and other content should be interesting. I’ve suggested in the past that the pole tax is pretty arbitrary and more trouble than it’s worth.
