Ind. Gov't. - Annex Books, yet again ... Indy files petition with SCOTUS

The ILB has many, many entries on the long-fought case of Annex Books v. City of Indianapolis, dating back to 2004. This one from Jan. 29th of this year includes a quote from the IndyStar: "A federal court has struck down an Indianapolis ordinance limiting the hours of adult bookstores, the latest in a decades-long series of local regulatory and law enforcement maneuvers taking aim at adult businesses." This ILB post from Jan. 22, 2014 begins: "The ILB has lost track of the various manifestations of Annex Books ..."

Late last evening SCOTUSblog named as its "petition of the day":

City of Indianapolis, Indiana v. Annex Books, Inc.
13-1441
Issue: Whether, to satisfy the First Amendment as applied in Renton v. Playtime Theatres, Inc. and its progeny, an hours-of-operation regulation targeting negative secondary effects must be supported by highly specific, statistically-significant empirical evidence.
