PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Lawyers for Blush, a downtown adult entertainment club, will appear before a judge in Common Pleas Court Thursday afternoon.

They are challenging a recent order issued by Acting Pittsburgh Police Chief Regina McDonald, which bars off-duty officers from working secondary employment security details at strip clubs.

McDonald issued the directive after the forced resignation of Nate Harper as police chief, and the on-going federal investigation into several police bank accounts and police secondary employment policies.

Attorney Jonathan Kamin tells KDKA-TV that the order from McDonald unfairly targeted a legal business, and could have “a chilling effect” on the adult entertainment business in Pittsburgh.

Kamin says off-duty police have provided security in Blush, a strip club in one form or another, for nearly 50 years.

The police administration, Kamin explains, is unfairly targeting the club, because of the nature of its business.
