Court Rules in Favor of Davenport Strip Club

Court News Posted on

The Iowa Court of Appeals has ruled that a Davenport strip club can open, rejecting city arguments that an ordinance regulating adult businesses prohibits it.

KWQC-TV reports Chorus Line applied for a license to operate in 2009 but the city denied its request because the club would be right next to another business that is mainly a lingerie shop.

The ordinance prohibits two adult entertainment businesses from opening within 500 feet or on the same lot. The lingerie business was not required to get an adult entertainment license and the court sided with the strip club in its ruling on Wednesday.

City officials say the court got it wrong and they will consider an appeal to the Iowa Supreme Court.
