Yes, state court rulings have made it legal to go topless, although state law still bars female toplessness in public for commercial purposes.
This is simply a training issue, says Robert Grebert, director of the University Heights Association, a private organization that provides security for the Albany and Troy campuses of The Sage Colleges.
But even the city police seem to be unsure of the law:
Capt. Daniel DeWolf, a Troy police spokesman, said the department is aware of Sunday’s incident and the scheduled protest. DeWolf said he was unsure whether city code forbids public toplessness.
I assume that state law trumps city law, but is that so?
