Only in California: suing to get children and adults together in the buff

It’s hard to believe that there are actually parents who want their children to be walking at eye level with hundreds of naked, adult crotches, but then again, California has always attracted a lot of weirdos.
Desert Sun Resort owners and Orange County residents John and Elizabeth Young filed a lawsuit March 16 in Orange County Superior Court against 500 unnamed defendants asking a judge to rule that the resort’s policy against children does not violate state law.
KNX 1070’s Margaret Carrero reports the couple were dumbfounded when they received a letter last month seeking penalties and damages over their policy against allowing kids on their property.
…The lawsuit was filed in response to a letter the Youngs received Feb. 17 from Palm Springs attorney David Baron — written on behalf of “certain individuals” — which threatened legal action against the clothing-optional resort “for maintaining and enforcing a No Children Allowed Policy and a Couples-Only Day Pass Policy”.
“The first three years of business we allowed children, and we really felt that there was some kind of liability for a child being on property and maybe being photographed or worse,” Elizabeth Young said.
Baron disagrees and insists the policy is a “clear case of discrimination” fueled more by money than by protecting kids from pedophiles.
…She said the resort, which has 32 hotel rooms and 59 condominiums on six acres, gets more than 10,000 visitors a year from around the world, and 40 percent of them are first-time visitors. She said she cannot guarantee that every guest has good intentions toward children.
The resort prohibits public sexual behavior and the use of cameras, cell phones and laptops throughout most of the premises, but “violations do occur,” Young said.
Welcome to Obama’s America where you have a “right” to live in a tent in a city park as long as you call it protesting, free contraception, and where children may yet have the “right” to see men’s junk swinging in the ocean breeze in California.
This does seem extraordinarily silly, but on the other hand, it could turn out to be a bonanza for trial lawyers. After all, if this works, think of all the other adult activities they could sue to get children involved in. Strip clubs seems like a natural fit and hey, aren’t dating services discriminating against children by not allowing them to participate? How about ABC stores? Why can’t your kid buy a bottle to vodka to carry with her as she takes a nude stroll on the beach to unwind from a tough day of finger painting? Who could even oppose it at this point without engaging in — that’s right, you guessed it — a war on children.
