Penthouse to fight PX sale ban

Published on .

Penthouse publisher General Media, New York, said it will ask a federal judge in New York Tuesday to issue a preliminary injunction to halt enforcement of the federal Military Honor & Decency Act slated to take effect in January. The act bans the sale or rental of sexually explicit materials in exchanges at military bases and aboard U.S. Navy ships worldwide. General Media says the law violates the First Amendment.
