Colonie strip club offers case to U.S. Supreme Court

The Colonie strip club Nite Moves is trying to bring its argument that lap dances aren't taxable to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Last fall the argument was rejected by the state's highest court. In a 4-3 decision, the court ruled that lap dances are taxable because they don't promote culture the way a ballet or other artistic endeavors might.

Nite Moves argued in that case that fees for admission to the strip club and for private dances are exempt from sales taxes.

A copy of the petition to the U.S. Supreme Court is available below.

Nite Moves owner Steven Dick said he knew the case could always end up in the U.S. Supreme Court, even though he hoped it could be settled for it became a national case.

He knows that his case is a long shot, but feels it is as deserving as any other case that the court might hear.

A full story on the Nite Moves petition will be in the Saturday issue of the Daily Gazette.
