Porn Industry Uses DOMA Defeat to Battle Condom Mandate

The adult film industry took a pragmatic view of the Supreme Court's ruling earlier this month against the Defense of Marriage Act.

The industry is battling to keep its stars from having to wear condoms during sex scenes, and producers contend the DOMA ruling will help them in that fight.

Porn industry attorneys filed a motion Wednesday in U.S. District Court asking that the AIDS Healthcare Foundation be removed from the industry’s legal battle to repeal the condom requirement that Los Angeles County voters approved last year.

Shortly before the motion was filed, the Supreme Court ruled that a group that had campaigned successfully for Proposition 8, the voter-approved measure banning gay marriage in California, had no legal standing when it came to appealing lower court rulings overturning the law....

In ruling on gay marriage, the Supreme Court said a private group has never been granted the standing to defend a state law in court when local officials decline to do so.
