Judge to hear arguments in pole dancing dispute

ADAIRVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A judge has set a date to hear oral arguments over whether a tavern on the Kentucky-Tennessee line should be allowed to offer pole dancing.

The Daily News in Bowling Green reports that Logan County, Ky., Circuit Court Judge Tyler Gill will hear arguments on Dec. 3.

Officials in Logan County denied an entertainment permit earlier this year to tavern owner Sheila Haley, who wants to offer paid pole dancing at the Tenn-Tucky State Line Bar.

Gill turned down a request from Haley's attorney during a status conference on Monday for an evidentiary trial appealing the denial, saying that part of the state law governing the appeal of permit denials is unconstitutional.

Gill said an evidentiary trial would call for him to usurp power given to the county's judge-executive.
