Strip club owner to take tax fight to Supreme Court

Daily Gazette: Attorneys representing Nite Moves filed a petition with the nation’s highest court in the hope the justices will take up the case decided by the New York State Court of Appeals last year. The petition submitted to the Supreme Court the day after the Fourth of July argues the taxation of exotic dancing is akin to “content-based discrimination” — an unconstitutional practice that provides government officials unlimited discretion to determine and tax on the basis of artistic merit. | Docket Entry: 677 New Loudon Corporation, dba Nite Moves, Petitioner v. New York Tax Appeals Tribunal, No. 13-38
