DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A jury will consider what damages to award next month in a lawsuit by the owner of a strip club against the city of Davenport and its city administrator.
The Quad-City Times reports (http://bit.ly/19jc0nC) that earlier this month, a federal judge ruled that the city and City Administrator Craig Malin violated the Chorus Line club owner’s rights by refusing to allow the club to continue operating after a new owner took over in 2009.
Judge Robert Pratt said in the Aug. 2 ruling that the city is liable for loss of profits incurred during the yearlong closure of the Chorus Line.
A jury is expected to hear arguments in the case beginning Sept. 16 and decide what to award in damages.
