Ohio town settles lawsuit with owners of swingers club

WEST CHESTER, Ohio (AP) — A suburban township has settled a lawsuit by Indiana-based adult club owners who had planned to open a swingers club in southwest Ohio.

The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reports (http://bit.ly/21oPC2w ) Melissa Warren and Eric Adams of Sanford Group LLC planned to open the sexually oriented business in West Chester but found their business license and zoning certificate had been revoked in November.

A judge ruled the town shouldn’t have revoked the club’s permit. The town and Sanford Group reached a settlement that calls for Warren and Adams not to open another such sexually oriented business or similar use in town.

The town has agreed to pay Sanford Group $61,000 and the site’s landlord $29,000 toward unpaid rent.
