They may be naked, but they're still armed with briefs.
 
A group of San Francisco nudists have retained an attorney and are preparing to file a class-action lawsuit against the city in order to block a proposed ban on naked people, according to reports.

 
Supervisor Scott Wiener, who represents the Castro districts, has proposed legislation that would put an end to the Market Street sight of a group of dedicated nudists, according to SF Weekly. Some of these selfsame nudists are fighting back via the courts.
 
Mitch Hightower, the group's ringleader, announced Tuesday that attorney Christina DiEdoardo has been hired to represent the nudists in court. 
 
Being nude in public is a "free speech issue," the attorney said.
 
There's another naked protest in front of City Hall at noon Wednesday for anyone more interested in skin than court filings, according to SF Weekly. There's also a fundraising page online for anyone wishing to donate to the nudists' cause.
