Portland airport stripper fights federal fine

PORTLAND, Ore. — John Brennan, who stripped naked last year to protest a security check at Portland’s airport, said he expects to lose the first round of his legal fight against a $1,000 fine. Still, he plans to press his free-speech argument in an appeal.

Brennan has a court date on Tuesday before an administrative law judge. His attorney said the free-speech argument won’t be allowed as he fights the fine, but an appeal in the US court system would present an opportunity to make it.
