City Responds to "Relaxation Studios" Lawsuit; Judge Denies "Spas" Their Restraining Order
|333 Body Works on Walnut Hill Lane in Northwest Dallas|
As it turns out, the city didn't take long to respond to the complaint, in which the "relaxation studios" and "spas" requested a temporary restraining order that would allow them to keep their doors open. You'll find that response after the jump, but, first, an excerpt from Dallas Caty Attorney Tom Perkins's follow-up: "The evidence will show that the certificates of occupancy were revoked because each application for a certificate of occupancy did not state that the use would be operated as a massage establishment, nor did the applicant supply a copy of a massage establishment license." Can't imagine why.
Anyway, yesterday, U.S. District Judge Ed Kinkeade denied the plaintiffs request for a TRO and canceled a hearing scheduled for today. The point, he said, is moot.
