California Supreme Court Refuses to Hear San Onofre Case

The Naturist Action Committee is evaluating its remaining options, whatever they are, in the wake of the California Supreme Court's decision not to hear NAC's appeal of the appellate court ruling in the San Onofre lawsuit. The California Department of Parks and Recreation is now free to issue citations for nudity at any location in the state park system.

Even though it was a loss, I congratulate the NAC for doing the right thing and standing up for nudist and naturist interests, unlike AANR which refused to back the NAC lawsuit, opting instead for pursuing a course of appeasement with the DPR, which so far has led to nothing but empty promises. I have no doubt that AANR will now continue to take the cowardly route and blame NAC for pissing off parks authorities, when the truth is that the state of California started this whole ugly mess when they arbitrarily decided to ban nudity at San Onofre.

Yes, perhaps it was a lost cause in the first place, but had AANR stepped up and supported the NAC lawsuit, at least it would have been a unified effort, with a unified course of action forward from this point.

It's not too late, AANR. Stuff your ego in a fanny pack and get together with the NAC so nudists and naturists can work together for a common cause.

Please donate to the NAC here to help them continue fighting for your nude rights.

The DPR really doesn't have the money to enforce this, but I'm sure they'll come up with some and make it an all-out assault. Media crews will be reporting live. Chris Hansen will be interviewing the beach-goers.

Then, they will close the public lands to everyone due to the budget.

I think the nudist protests will get a lot bigger now.
