Florida City Orders Adult Store to Relocate

At a Jan. 3 hearing, the city of Dania Beach ruled that adult retailer Your A to X Video Outlet must relocate within 30 days to comply with local zoning laws. The store’s attorney Jamie Benjamin told the Miami Herald that his client plans to fight the order.

''We're not just going to pack up and go away,'' Benjamin told the Herald. ''We believe the city of Dania violated our constitutional rights in their attempt to run us out of town…[t]here's absolutely no alternative avenue open for adult establishments other than a rock pit or Bass Pro Shops.”

At the hearing, Dania Beach officials argued that the store is carrying a higher percentage of adult material than is allowed under a 2001 ordinance. City code enforcement manager Nicholas Lupo testified that he was propositioned by two men in a back room and witnessed two other men engaged in a sex act on the premises.
