On Friday, after a brief and naked protest, their attorney Christina DiEdoardo filed the complaint in federal court, basing it on illegal arrests the SFPD made on Feb 1 (the first day of the nudity ban) and Feb. 27 when nudist activists were peacefully protesting, which included a ("respectful") dance performance.
"Those were blatant violations of the 1st Amendment right to free speech (both the political and the artistic expression) as well as of the 14th Amendment equal protection rights," the nudists claim.
