Los Angeles County is disputing allegations by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation that it is failing to enforce Measure B, which requires mandatory condom usage on adult film shoots, by not collecting permit fees from production companies.
County Counsel Mark Saladino sent a letter to the Hollywood advocacy group on Jan. 30 in response to a letter AHF sent four days. AHF warned of court action if the county did not set a permit fee within 30 days that would fund enforcement measures.
The county’s response disagreed with AHF’s assertion it was under a duty to set a permit fee or that the courts had imposed a mandatory duty to do so.
“Accordingly, any litigation on this matter, as threatened in your letter, would be legally insupportable,” Saladino wrote.
