Quick Update on the French Burkini Ban

Yesterday, the Administrative Tribunal Court in Nice, France struck down the bans  imposed on Burkinis by a number of towns because the bans were not supported by an adequate legal justification. The court held that Burkinis do not pose a risk to safety or public order. The towns imposing the bans had tried to justify them based on the recent terror attacks in France. The court noted that banning the Burkini does not aid in promoting public safety and order.
