State wants stripper age case moved to Baton Rouge
NEW ORLEANS - Louisiana officials want a new location for a federal lawsuit challenging the state law aimed at making 21 the minimum age for working as a stripper.
The suit was filed in New Orleans, but lawyers for the state's alcohol control commissioner - the defendant in the suit - say it should be moved to Baton Rouge. That's where lawmakers approved the law earlier this year.
The state notes the commissioner is based there and that two of the three dancers challenging the law work there. The motion also says key witnesses are in Baton Rouge.
It's unclear whether the plaintiffs will agree to the move or when U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier (BAHR'-bee-aye) will decide.
Barbier has blocked enforcement of the law pending further proceedings.
