Judge rules in favor of club regarding closing time
According to the Miami Heraldz; A Miami-Dade judge ruled a local strip club can keep its dancers earning money past midnight and ignore the curfew imposed three months ago by Mayor Carlos Gimenez as a needed measure against the spread of COVID-19.
The win by Tootsies in Miami Gardens could doom the restrictions countywide, with the club’s lawyers say the ruling likely spells the end of the Gimenez-imposed curfew unless the county wins in its appeal
The statewide decree by Gov. Ron DeSantis limiting local COVID business restrictions left the county unable to keep the club closed overnight.
Tootsie’s normal closing time is 6:00am but the county was imposing a midnight closing.
