Porn producer sues to block condom law

LOS ANGELES — A major porn filmmaker sued to block a new Los Angeles County law requiring porn actors to wear condoms, calling it a threat to free expression, the Los Angeles Times is reporting.

According to the paper, Vivid Entertainment contends Measure B, passed by voters last fall, violates the First Amendment right to free speech and expression.

The company said the measure is unnecessary because the adult industry already has safeguards, such as regular blood testing of actors to prevent the spread of AIDS and other venereal diseases.
