Some follow-ups in fortune-telling legal news …

It looks like the 38 year-old ban on fortune-telling in Carroll County, Maryland is about to end.

Last week, the repeal measure won approval from the Senate and House of Delegates.

It’s next step is to be reviewed by Governor Martin O’Malley.

Since the Maryland Court of Appeals ruled last year that bans on fortune-telling businesses violate the First Amendment, such laws have been facing opposition across the country.

Harford County, Maryland repealed its 31-year old prohibition just last week.

And Meridian County, Mississippi is likely to follow suit.

The City Attorney’s office has been asked to draw up a repeal motion to be presented to Council in April.

And in Pompano, Florida, City Council is considering changing their law to allow fortune-telling businesses to operate in the general business districts.

Presently, such establishments are relegated to light-medium industrial areas, alongside strip clubs and pet hotels.
