SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - A new trial has been ordered in
San Bernardino's contentious battle to get rid of a strip club.
The California Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a new trial was
needed to determine if the city, which battled 14 years to close down The Flesh Club, intentionally misled a judge by contending the strip club was actually a brothel.
The Flesh Club closed in 1995 for nearly five years after a judge issued an injunction banning nude dancing. The judge's decision was based on information from the city that turned out to be wrong.
The Flesh Club is demanding $1.4 million in lost revenue.
