Appeals Court Considering Angola Strip Club Dispute

ANGOLA, Ind. (AP) – A federal appeals court is now considering whether northeastern Indiana city officials acted properly when they prevented a strip club from opening.

Attorneys for the city of Angola and Showgirl III owners Alva and Sandra Butler presented oral arguments before the appeals court in Chicago on Tuesday.
 
A federal judge in January upheld the rezoning decision that prevented the club from opening in the city about 40 miles north of Fort Wayne.
 
The Herald-Republican reports an attorney for the Butlers told the appeals court that Angola officials “went into a panic” and wrongly changed the city's zoning rules.
 
The appeals court didn't say when its decision would be released.
