LDS church to appeal Dead Goat ruling

The LDS Church plans to appeal a judge’s ruling that said Salt Lake City was right to allow a strip club to open downtown near church property.

“We respectfully disagree with some of the court’s ruling,” said Alan Sullivan, the church’s attorney on this case. “We continue to believe that the operation of a sexually oriented business at that location is unlawful.”

The church can’t appeal to the Utah Supreme Court until the full case is resolved. The lower court hasn’t decided if the Crazy Goat Saloon, 165 S. West Temple, is a nuisance as the church says. Third District Judge Denise Lindberg ruled Wednesday against the church.
