Bikini baristas file suit again city, defend right to work in bikini

Bikini baristas file suit again city, defend right to work in bikini”

The suit comes in response to city council legislation, passed last month, that restricts the dress code of baristas working at quick-service establishments, prohibiting them from wearing bikinis to work.

Schuyler Lifschultz, part owner of the Hillbilly Hotties coffee stands in Everett and the attorney behind the federal lawsuit, said the owners of the two other bikini-barista stands are not fighting the ordinances.

The Everett City Council passed the dress-code ordinances in August, which The Seattle Times says effectively abolish bikini-clad baristas and so-called sexpresso coffee stands from the city.

The popularity of the bikini coffee stands, or rather the 'bare-ristas, ' has exploded in the Pacific Northwest over the past decade. One suspects the coffee is good too.

The bill also said that these bikini baristas are dressing in a manner that is closely related with adult entertainment and they have negative secondary effects on the community as a whole and upon minors.

In particular, they claimed city ordinance 3559-17 , which prohibits workers from exposing "more than one-half of the part of the female breast located below the top of the areola" and the "bottom one-half of the anal cleft", was hard to understand.

Bikini Beans Espresso in Kent, Washington has left a local councillor red-faced and asking for their baristas to be covered up. The first violation results in a $250 fine on the business owner and mandates the business be put on a special "probationary license".

Well those hot gals in bikini won't go down without a fight because they have chose to sue Everett claiming that the laws violate their rights to express themselves and discriminate against women.

"I choose my own clothing at work, and for me, the message I send is freedom", she said.

"Employees and owners of barista stands where this conduct occurs are making large sums of money from overtly sexual, lewd conduct and prostitution", said the city in one of the measures.

The plaintiffs filed the suit in Seattle's U.S. District Court and claim that the ordinances unlawfully target women, are vague, and prohibit the employees from communication through their attire.

Why did this 24 y/o become an Internet Exhibitionist?

The city of Everett and Snohomish County have had trouble with the bikini barista stands, which have sometimes run as drive-thru strip clubs and brothels.
