Washington judge rules in favor of bikini-clad baristas
The judge said the old law violated the equal protection clause in the 14th Amendment because it targeted women’s clothing and not men’s.
Bikini-clad baristas in Washington state won a federal court case protecting their constitutional right to wear what they want.
A 2017 Everett, Washington dress code ordinance requiring that "quick service" workers must cover the upper and lower body has been ruled unconstitutional by a federal court.
The ruling comes after the U.S. District Court in Seattle found that the ordinance violated the equal protection clauses of the U.S. and Washington state constitutions.
