NEW ORLEANS — You can't wear a kilt to Rick's Cabaret.

That's what Jeremy Don Kerr alleges in a federal lawsuit after he was denied entry into Rick's Bourbon Street gentlemen's club.

Kerr, in his complaint, said that he was a victim of an unconstitutional instance of  sex discrimination and that Ricks Cabaret's refusal to allow him was based on the belief or perception that his kilt attire "did not conform to gender stereotypes."

"Because [Rick's Cabaret's] representatives believed or perceived that the plaintiff possesses male genitalia [Rick's Cabaret's] representatives denied [Kerr] access to the establishment," Kerr's suit says.

Kerr seeks an injunction over discriminatory treatment and one of two options: An award of $400 in court filing fees, compensatory damages of $1 and punitive damages of $1, plus a "lifetime VIP membership to all Rick's Cabaret establishments" or an award of $1 and court filing fees, plus punitive damages of $50,000.

Allan Priaul, Rick's Cabaret's spokesman, told XBIZ that the Rick’s Cabaret in New Orleans is a licensee club.

"The New Orleans club is licensed to Robert Watters, who is a founder of the publicly traded company and is on its board, but he owns the club — not Rick's Cabaret International Inc.," he said.
