A pole dance instructor is suing a Butler County township over whether her studio should be considered an "adult entertainment" business. The American Civil Liberties Union says Stephanie Babines was improperly denied an occupancy permit in Adams Township. The classes involve no nudity, no spectators and no sexual activity. The lawsuit says the township is denying Babines' First Amendment right to teach and communicate ideas about art and fitness.
