TopFree Success in Fort Collins

The city of Fort Collins, CO made a decision on September 3, 2019 to remove references to a 2015 policy from its public nudity code that barred women and girls over age 10 from exposing their breasts in public. The ban was unenforceable since February 2017, when a district court judge ruled it unconstitutional; the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals confirmed that ruling 2-1 in February 2019. The city spent about $120,000 and negotiated a $202,000 payment to cover the legal fees of plaintiffs Brit Hoagland and Samantha Six.
