An Addendum to: “Report on the Opinions to be Expressed by Professor Daniel Linz Sidepockets, Inc. d/b/a Keepers v. The City of Milford Connecticut, August 10, 2004″
In order to test the foundational assumption that the city of Milford may regulate adult businesses because they are associated with negative secondary effects, an empirical study of criminal activity surrounding adult businesses in Milford was undertaken. Unlike previous studies, conducted in other municipalities, specific attention was give to developing an empirical approach that fulfilled the requirements for the proper conduct of a social scientific inquiry.
