Adult film production company Vivid Entertainment, along with porn actors Kayden Kross and Logan Pierce, have filed a federal lawsuit against Los Angeles County, seeking to overturn a newly enacted condom law.

LA County voters approved a measure that requires adult film performers to use condoms while filming sex scenes within the county borders. 

According to the Los Angeles Times, Vivid's lawsuit claims the new ordinance violates the performers' right to freedom of expression under the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

During a hotly debated build up to the ballot, proponents of the measure claimed they were working for the performers' own protection. Meanwhile, producers argued digital removal of the condoms from sex scenes would be too costly. They also threatened to take their business outside L.A.

Measure B, aka "the condom law" has been in effect since Dec. 2012, but L.A. County does not yet have an enforcement plan in place.
