Some readers might be familiar with the Hansard debates that accompanied the passing of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 in which the privacy of a cubicle was discussed. Well the USA may be about to have a similar discussion after the ACLU stepped in to ‘help’ Sen. Larry Craig (he of airport toilets fame).

The ACLU filed a brief Tuesday supporting Craig. It cited a Minnesota Supreme Court ruling 38 years ago that found that people who have sex in closed stalls in public restrooms “have a reasonable expectation of privacy.”

That means the state cannot prove Craig was inviting an undercover officer to have sex in public, the ACLU wrote.
