The Iowa appellate courts continue to impress me (for one).
The Chorus Line is located near Dr. John’s, an adult store. But Davenport, in an attempt to prevent red-light districts, restricts adjacent adult businesses and refused to give the Chorus Line a license when a new owner wanted to reopen it. The problem is, the city had licensed Dr. John’s as a retail boutique, not as an adult store.
Not content, the city urged the Supreme Court of Iowa to hear the case. Earlier this week the supreme court politely declined the city’s request.
I doubt that the voters will oust the justices over this one.
