Brown v. Hot, Sexy, and Safer
United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit
68 F.3d 525 (1995)
Suzi Landolphi (defendant) established Hot, Sexy, and Safer (company) (defendant) to create an AIDS-awareness program. In 1992, Landolphi was contracted by Chelmsford High School to provide a presentation. The presentation involved skits and discussions regarding sexual activity and remarks on oral sex, anal sex, masturbation, homosexual activity, premarital sex, and orgasms. After Landolphi’s presentation, students Jason Mesiti and Shannon Silva and their parents, including Ronald Brown, (plaintiffs) filed a suit against Landolphi, the company, and school officials, alleging that the school-sponsored presentation violated their privacy and free-exercise rights and that the presentation was violative of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Landolphi and the defendants motioned to dismiss the case. The district court granted the motion. The matter was appealed.
