Nude dancing is a form of constitutionally protected expression, but just barely. The U.S. Supreme Court has described it as only within the outer ambit of the First Amendments shield. Courts have upheld a slew of restrictions on strip clubs based on their possible secondary effects on a surrounding community, like blight, decreasing property values and increase in crime (especially prostitution).

But sometimes the strip clubs win. The First U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday handed a rare victory to an adult entertainment company seeking to build a8,935-square-foot Adirondack style club in Mendon, Mass., a town of about6,000 people located about an hour southwest of Boston.

The Mendon Board of Selectman granted Showtime Entertainment LLC a license to build the strip club in 2010, on the condition that it abide by 18 pages of regulations and several newly amended zoning bylaws. Showtime could only build on four parcels in the town specifically carved out for adult entertainment. The company would have to confine the club to 2,000square feet; make it no taller than 14 feet; and open the clubs doors no earlier than 4:30 p.m. on school days. The town also banned alcohol in the club.

The justification for the rules: maintaining the rural aesthetics of Mendon as asmall town and avoiding traffic congestion.

Showtime sued, alleging that the zoning restrictions violated the First Amendment. A federal district judge sided with the town, ruling in 2012 that the regulations were narrowly tailored to serve the towns substantial government interest.

Showtime appealed, placing the case before the Boston-based First Circuit. The appeals court suggested that the towns justifications for the restrictions were pretense.

We see no cognizable difference in aesthetic impact between a large building hosting adult-entertainment activities and a large building hosting a bridge club or a bible study, Judge Juan Torruella wrote in theunanimous First Circuit decision.

The First Circuit also found insufficient evidence that the proposed club would impact traffic.

We believe that the record makes clear thatthese interests, although theoretically substantial in their ownright, are not what prompted Mendons amendments to the bylaws, JudgeTorruella wrote.

The ruling means that Showtime cant be held to the bylaws.

By Kashmir Hill and Thomas Fox-Brewster

Before Edward Snowden smashed its digital doors wide open, the National Security Agency was seen as the mysterious keeper of an arsenal of dark-voodoo hacking weapons. Now we know the truth: NSA employees are almost too good at what they doas are their counterparts at Israels elite military signal intelligence group, Unit 8200. Unlike people at most government agencies, NSAers and Unit 8200 alums include world experts in their craft, in this case hacking and defending networks and devices. With data breaches now a daily news item, a stint at either agency has become rsum gold for entrepreneurs. Some agency folks are leaving more out of a moral duty to restore some balance back to the private sector. In the last year ex-NSA founders have snagged $9 million for bug-bounty firm Synack, $2.5 million for attack-detection firm Area 1 Security and $10.3 million for e-mail encryption play Virtru. I think its a direct correlation to Snowden, says Ted Schlein, a veteran cybersecurity venture investor at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. The path from spy to startup is also in full swing in Israel, where entrepreneurs envy the earlier success of 8200 alums such as Gil Shwed and Marius Nacht, the billionaire cofounders of Check Point Software, and Nir Zuk, founder of Palo Alto Networks (market value: $6.6 billion). Here are some of the more high-profile defectors and players in the spy-versus-spy game.

1. LEV KADYSHEVITCH, Head Of Research, Biocatch Its algorithms determine the identity of users based on how they interact with apps, exploiting research on human response to certain phenomena, such as the brief disappearance of a mouse cursor. The 8200-alum-packed firm has $14 million in funding.

2. GIORA ENGEL, Cofounder, LightCyber With his Unit 8200 buddy Michael Mumcuoglu he established LightCyber in 2011 to detect breaches using a network appliance that flags strange-looking traffic. It has raised $12 million to date from VCs and Check Points billionaire cofounder Marius Nacht.

3. TED SCHLEIN, Managing Partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers Schlein did not belong to either spy agency but he recognizes their potential. Silicon Valleys top cybersecurity financier recently backed two NSAer firms: Synack and Area 1 Security. The portrayal of the NSA doing things that are bad is not making it the hot place to work inside the intelligence community. I think a lot of their creativity is being curtailed, says Schlein. As a VC, I think its wonderful. As a citizen of the U.S., Id make a different argument.

4. LIOR DIV, CEO, CybeReason The Unit 8200 alum moved his startup from Israel to Boston to tap talent and a bigger market. Its software infers the presence of an attack under way and displays the situation in an easy-to-grasp graphical interface. Div raised $4.6 million earlier this year from Charles River Ventures.

5. JAY KAPLAN and 10. MARK KUHR,Cofounders, Synack Kaplan and Mark Kuhr, both 28, spent four years in offensive security at NSAs counterterrorism division, hacking around for weak spots and finding plenty to exploit. They quit early last year and quickly raised $1.5 million to launch Synack, an army of several hundred freelancers who get paid if they find bugs in clients codesexcept this time the bugs get fixed. We dont work for the NSA anymore. We wouldnt leave a vulnerability or anything like that, says Kaplan. But we would turn away Chinas elite hacking force as a customer.

6. ERAN BARAK, CEO and cofounder, Hexadite Barak was a five-year veteran and officer at Unit 8200 before going into business earlier this year. Hexadite plans to bring automated incident response to the masses. It already has four customers in Israel and the U.S. YL Ventures backed Barak and his colleagues with $2.5 million.

NHCLU looking at the city’s rules against begging

A woman stands in a popular spot for panhandlers on Gossling Road close to the turn to the highway in Portsmouth. Her sign on a piece of cardboard states, Stranded; need help to get back to Boston; God bless and thank you.Deb Cram/dcram@seacoastonline.com

After challenging panhandling ordinances in Concord and Manchester, the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union has filed Right to Know requests seeking information about Portsmouth’s handling of panhandlers.

Gilles Bissonnette, staff attorney for the NHCLU, said he isn’t ready to publicly disclose what he’s looking for in Portsmouth. But in the other cases, the NHCLU has argued that municipal ordinances barring panhandling violate the free speech rights of indigent and homeless people.

Concord wrote its ordinance based on input from the NHCLU and Rochester overturned its ordinance under pressure from the NHCLU. But in Portsmouth, said City Attorney Robert Sullivan, there is no ordinance that specifically addresses panhandling.

The City Council came close to passing an anti-panhandling ordinance in 2004, according to Herald archives, but it never made it on the books, Sullivan said.

Cited 10 or more times for his panhandling in Portsmouth was Steven Morin, 47, homeless, who likely holds the record for being most-cited panhandler. Morin once told a police officer he’d use a summons as toilet paper and returned to panhandling on Market Street after verbal warnings, tickets and convictions, according to court records.

But none of the summonses given to Morin say the crimes he committed were panhandling. Instead, Portsmouth police cited Morin for violating state law RSA 265:40 which states, “No person shall stand on the travelled portion of a roadway for the purpose of soliciting a ride, employment, business or contributions from the occupant of any vehicle.”

In spite of there being no panhandling prohibition in Portsmouth, Sullivan said, “some panhandling activity could violate other laws, both state and local.” One example, he said, would be disorderly conduct.

Morin was convicted for disorderly conduct based on the fact he was previously cited seven times for the state panhandling-related charge, and verbally warned many more times, but continued to solicit cash on Market Street. So while he wasn’t charged with violating a panhandling ordinance, it was his panhandling that got him a misdemeanor conviction.

University Hospital, Boston

IT OUGHT TO be raining, thought Luke Abramson. It ought to be gray and miserable, with a lousy cold rain pelting down.

Instead, the hospital room was bright, with mid-December sunshine slanting through the windows. In the bed lay eight-year-old Angela, Lukes granddaughter, frail and wasting, her eyes closed, her thinned blond hair spread across the pillow. Angelas parents, Lukes only daughter and his son-in-law, stood on the other side of the bed, together with Angelas attending physician. Luke stood alone.

Hed been playing tennis in the universitys indoor court when the phone call from the hospital came. Or, rather, doggedly going through the motions of playing tennis. Nearly seventy-five, even doubles was getting beyond him. Although the younger men tried to take it easy on him, more than once Luke had gloomily suggested they start playing triples.

And then came the phone call. Angie was terminal. He had rushed to the hospital, bundling his bulky parka over his tennis shorts and T-shirt.

Then theres nothing? Lukes daughter, Lenore, couldnt finish the sentence. Her voice choked in sobs.

Norrie, Luke called to her silently, dont cry. Ill help you. I can cure Angie, I know I can. But he couldnt speak the words aloud. He watched Lenore sobbing quietly, her heart breaking.

And Luke remembered all the other times when his daughter had come to him in tears, her deep brown eyes brimming, her dear little form racked with sobs. Ill fix it, Norrie, he had always told her. Ill make it all better for you. Even when his wife died after all those painful years of battling cancer, Lenore came to her father for comfort, for protection against the terrible wrongs that life had thrown at them.

Now Lenore stood with her husband, who wrapped an arm protectively around her slim, trembling shoulders. Del towered over little Lenore, a tall, athletic figure standing firmly beside his diminutive, grief-stricken wife. Hes being strong for her, Luke knew. But he could see the agony, the bitterness in his clenched jaw and bleak eyes.

Ron Paul Liberty, Gold, Bitcoin, Boston, And His Homeschooling Curriculum Alex Jones 4 26 2013 – Video

Today the Supreme Courtis hearing two cases on law enforcements ability to search a persons cellphone without a warrant. It is an important decision in a time where a hand-size device can contain troves of personal data, some of which may or may not be pertinent to a case.

The decisions boil down to the Fourth Amendment: What are unreasonable searches and seizures?

The decision could affect a wide swath of the population. The New York Times notes that 12 million people are arrested every year, often for minor offenses, and that about 90 percent of Americans have cellphones.

Currently, the courts allow law enforcement to do warrantless searches when a person is arrested. For example, if someone is pulled over and a cop has probable cause he might check the car. This is often justified as a way to ensure police safety and avoid the destruction of evidence.

In its entirety the Fourth Amendment reads:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

But what about a cellphone? Can a cop flip through your contacts, or browser history or Dropbox without a warrant? Are those papers or effects, or not?

The two cases being heard are on opposite ends of the spectrum. The first is Riley v. California. In 2009, David L. Riley had an expired car registration, and was pulled over in San Diego. Police also found two loaded guns and text messages that associated him with a gang. A further search of the phone linked him to an attempted murder. He was convicted and received 15 years in prison.

Both the guns and phone were found without a warrant; a California appeals court ruled that the search was like going through a persons wallet or address book and did not require one.

The second case isUnited States v. Wurie.Brima Wurie was arrested in Boston in 2007 on drug and gun charges. Officers searched his flip-phones call log without a warrant. A Boston federal appeals court threw out the cellphone records as evidence. Judge Norman H. Stahl wrote, Today, many Americans store their most personal papers and effects in electronic format on a cellphone, carried on the person.

Fourth Amendment in the digital age: Supreme Court to decide if police can search cellphones without a warrant

Courthouse News editor sees nationwide plagueand hell get a chance to make his case

Its been a routine for generations of legal beat reporters: Every weekday afternoon, at courthouses across the United States, a reporter steps behind the records counter and thumbs through the lawsuits filed that day, looking for news.

This custom is endangered, though, and not just because files have moved online, or because there arent as many legal beat reporters as there used to be. Many state courts now keep new civil cases out of sight of the press and public for days, and sometimes even weeks, after theyre filed.

Its a nationwide plague, said Bill Girdner, the founder and editor of Courthouse News Service.

But now, a federal trial court in California will have to determine whether the standard delays at a local courthouse are permissibleafter a higher court ruled that Girdners complaints raise First Amendment concerns.

Based in Pasadena, CA, Courthouse News is a wire service that specializes in civil litigation and covers the courts for both its own website and around 3,000 subscribers, including the Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, and other major news organizations.

In 2011, Courthouse News sued the Superior Court of Ventura County, CA, after the court stopped letting the newswires local correspondent see every new civil suit on the day it was filed. A federal judge dismissed the case. But Courthouse News appealed, and on April 7 a panel of three Ninth Circuit judges ruled that the trial court had to hear the case.

Circuit Judge Kim McLane Wardlaws opinion said the case presents an important First Amendment question and thus should be heard in federal court.

Though the government may sometimes withhold information without violating the expressive rights protected by the First Amendment, the First Amendment right of access to public proceedingswhere it appliesis inextricably intertwined with the First Amendment right of free speech, Wardlaw wrote.

The opinion doesnt specifically find that Courthouse News is entitled to records access under the Constitutionthats what the trial court will have to determine. But Wardlaw notes that federal appellate courts have widely agreed that the First Amendment right of access extends to civil proceedings and associated records and documents.

B. Scott arrives to the 25th Annual GLAAD in Los Angeles in April 2014.

FORTUNE — In August 2013, transgender television personality B. Scott filed a suit against Black Entertainment Television and its parent company Viacom Inc., claiming that the network had discriminated against him based on his gender identity and sexual orientation.

The lawsuit stemmed from Scott’s appearance as a style correspondent at the 2013 BET awards preshow. After his first segment of the night, in which he appeared with heavy makeup and heels, the network told him to tone down his look and change into masculine clothing that was “different from the androgynous style he’s used to … and comfortable with,” according to the complaint.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge decided the case Wednesday, and it came down to theFirst Amendment; not Scott’s freedom to speech and expression, but Viacom’s (VIA).The court found that BET’s decision as to how Scott would appear on camera was part of the network’s creative process of developing and broadcasting the show, which is protected by the First Amendment.

MORE:Americans have fallen in love with real estate once again

The case is by no means the first in which a media company has used the First Amendment as a defenseagainst lawsuits alleging discrimination. The order on Thursday cites several other instances.

There was the racial discrimination case against ABC for its failure to feature non-white contestants on The Bachelorand The Bachelorette. A federal district court in Tennessee dismissed the matter after finding that “casting decisions are a necessary component of any entertainment show’s creative content.” The court said that “the plaintiffs seek to drive an artificial wedge between casting decisions and the end product, which itself is indisputably protected as speech by the First Amendment.”

And there was the lawsuit filed against Warner Bros. by a former writers’ assistant for the television show Friendswho asserted that the use of sexually coarse and vulgar language and conduct by the show’s writers constituted sexual harassment. The Supreme Court of California in that case held that “the First Amendment protects creativity.”

The case thatheld greatestprecedent is a matter in which a group of gay, lesbian, and bisexual Irish Americans sought to participate in Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day parade. The U.S. Supreme Court, which ultimately heard the case, ruled that it would be a violation of the First Amendment for Massachusetts to require private citizens “who organize a parade to include among the marchers a group imparting a message the organizers do not wish to convey.”

The defendants in these cases arguedthat they didn’t care what their employees or participants are in reality — gay, straight, male, female — but rather how they appear. “They say, ‘We are entitled to create a program that looks the way we want it to look,’” says Eugene Volokh, a professor at UCLA School of Law. And the courts have agreed with them.

U.S. taxpayers would need to pay an average of $1,259 more a year to make up the federal and state taxes lost to corporations and individuals sheltering money in overseas tax havens, according to a report.

“Tax haven abusers benefit from America’s markets, public infrastructure, educated workforce, security and rule of law – all supported in one way or another by tax dollars – but they avoid paying for these benefits,” U.S. Public Interest Research Group said in the report released today, the deadline for filing 2013 taxes.

“Instead, ordinary taxpayers end up picking up the tab, either in the form of higher taxes, cuts to public spending priorities, or increases to the federal debt,” it said.

In total, the U.S. loses $150 billion in federal revenue and another $34 billion in state revenue annually because of money parked in tax havens, the Boston-based consumer advocacy group concluded.

That’s almost 5 percent of total federal revenue. The U.S. is projected to raise $3.032 trillion this year, up from $2.775 trillion for fiscal year 2013, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

U.S. PIRG released the report as it tries to increase pressure on lawmakers to change how companies pay taxes on income credited to foreign subsidiaries.

Offshore Accumulations

The largest U.S.-based companies have accumulated $1.95 trillion outside the U.S., up 11.8 percent from a year earlier, according to securities filings from 307 corporations reviewed by Bloomberg News.

Together, they added $206 billion to their stockpiles of offshore profits last year, leaving earnings in low-tax countries until Congress gives them a reason not to. Three multinational firms — Microsoft Corp., Apple Inc. and International Business Machines Corp. — added $37.5 billion, or 18.2 percent of the total increase.

Prospects have dimmed for a revision of the U.S. tax code this year that would have addressed offshore havens.
