Appeals Court
won't review
Danish News
court order


The Danish News Co., a controversial
downtown Ann Arbor adult bookstore
has failed in an effort to reopen for
business after closing on June 19.
The Michigan Court of Appeals tur-
ned down a request from bookstore at-
torneys who asked the court to review a
May 28 preliminary injunction handed
down by Washtenaw County Circuit
Judge Henry Conlin. That injunction
was intended to prevent the store from
operating while the issue of Danish
News' alleged violation of zoning and
sign ordinances was decided in court.
DANISH NEWS employees, however,
continued to operate the store, saying
the wording in Conlin's order was am-
biguous and did not apply to their store.
Conlin then issued an amended order
June 18, saying his original order was
intended to prohibit the operation of
any business at 209 N. Fourth Ave., the
store's location.
The bookstore closed its doors on
June,19 because of the amended order.
Detroit Attorney William Swor,

representing Danish News, said he has
asked the Court of Appeals and the
Michigan Supreme Court to review
Conlin's amended order. No decision
has been made on the appeal of that or-
City Attorney Bruce Laidlaw and
other city officials have been
repeatedly frustrated by what some say
is the store's "blatant" disregardd for
the ordinances and court order.
AT ONE POINT, Laidlaw began con-
tempt of court proceedings against
Danish News for allegedly violating the
original temporary injunction. Since the
amended order was handed down,
however, Laidlaw has discontinued the
contempt proceedings. "I have the im-
pression that (contempt proceedings)
will get me nowhere at this point,"
Laidlaw said. ,
Danish News employees closed the
store voluntarily on June 19 after
Laidlaw informed them that Conlin had
agreed to provide bench warrants for
the arrest of employees who refused to
close the shop.
