The law in Los Angeles County is that if you're making porn, your performers need to be wearing condoms. Now comes word the first complaint against a porn company has been filed, alleging the production was in violation of the voter-approved law, Measure B.

AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the organization that served as a vocal proponent of the law, reports that they received an anonymous tip about the rule-breaking behavior on the set of a film produced by Immoral Productions. That company had been issued a provisional health permit by L.A. County, but violated the terms of the permit by "producing adult themed content wherein the actors are engaging in vaginal and anal penetrative acts without the use of condoms."

"AHF said it verified the claim by reviewing material on the company's website," reports the Daily News.

Subsequently, AHF says in an email release they filed their complaint, via fax and U.S. mail, on Sunday, March 17th in a letter addressed to Jonathan Fielding, MD, MPH, Director of Public Health for the County of Los Angeles.

There are lawsuits pending against the County law, and it is unclear if that litigation will affect the pursuit of the complaint as filed by AHF. In the meantime, there is already talk that the law could go statewide.

AHF plans to discuss the first complain--perhaps the first of many to come--with the media later Tuesday.
