  1. Supreme Court ruling.
  2. Justice Kennedy’s opinion.
  3. Justice Souter’s opinion.
  4. Justice Scalia’s opinion.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in City of Los Angeles v. Alameda Books that Los Angeles could use its 1977 study as the basis for an ordinance that did not allow two adult facilities in the same building.

Media Coalition submitted an amicus brief, which argued that in recent years, the scope of adult zoning has been broadened to the point where mainstream businesses are often regulated as well.
