INDICE DE GALERIAS
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — The city of Davenport is making a change in the way it handles disputes with citizens after losing a long court battle with a strip club and paying $270,000 to settle.
KWQC reports (http://bit.ly/17FeJqa ) Davenport denied the Chorus Line a cabaret license in 2009, citing an ordinance that forbids two adult entertainment businesses from being within 500 feet of each other. City Administrator Craig Malin concluded the club and the lingerie shop next door were adult establishments and he denied the license.
The Chorus Line sued and won several court rulings. After four years the city settled.
Alderman Gene Meeker says arbitrators should handle future disputes.
The Chorus Line's attorney says the city has conflicts of interest when officials make administrative decisions after already being involved in a case.
