Is Partial Nudity a Neighborhood Nuisance?
The oddest legal question of the day might be this: Does gardening in barely legal, scanty attire constitute a public nuisance?
The renters of a home in Boulder are upsetting their neighbors by gardening in a state of nature -- or at least as close as they can get without breaking the law. The nudist couple, Catharine and Robert Pierce, don thongs when they venture outside; Catharine adds pasties. Some of the neighbors complain that the Pierces can be seen by the children who attend a neighborhood school or play in nearby parks. The couple's landlord is threatening eviction for violating a lease term that prohibits nuisance behavior if the Pierces don't begin to dress "appropriately."
