Adult novelty store sues Burnsville over DVD sales


An adult novelty store in Burnsville is suing the city, saying a zoning provision preventing it from selling sexually explicit DVDs is unconstitutional.

North Dakota-based Enchantasys Partners 2 LLC filed a lawsuit in federal court Wednesday contesting an ordinance that does not allow “sexually oriented businesses” to operate in certain parts of the city.

The suit argues the provision, applied to stores that sell or rent even a small number of items such as sexually explicit movies, books or magazines, violates the First Amendment. The company is seeking a preliminary injunction to allow it to sell DVDs while the suit is being resolved. A hearing on that motion has yet to be scheduled.
