Dallas Digs Deeper In Taxpayers' Pockets Re: Exxxotica

DALLAS—As AVN noted last April, the city of Dallas is spending about $4,000 per day fighting the lawsuit filed by Three Expo Events LLC, the owners of the Exxxotica lifestyle conventions. The suit was filed after the Dallas City Council voted to ban the show from the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center this year. Notw city leaders have put taxpayers on the hook for an additional $175,000, all of which will go to the attorneys representing the city, which the Dallas Observer termed "a group of the most experienced and ideological business lawyers it could find," including perennial porn fighter Scott D. Bergthold. There hasn't been any forward motion in the case since the parties agreed to a confidentiality/protective order on July 27, which will allow the city to keep certain "confidential" and "highly confidential" information under wraps—but that hasn't stopped the money flow around the case. "This vote brings the city's running tab in the case to more than $400,000," the Observer noted. "For scale, that's about half of what the proposed 2017 budget allocates to solving the loose dog problem in southern Dallas. Put another way, DPD's post-shooting response cost about $700,000 in police overtime"—and absent a settlement offer, which doesn't appear to be in the cards, the case won't even be going to trial until the summer of 2017, with pre-trial discovery expected to be completed by next March. No word yet on how Dallas taxpayers are receiving the news of this latest fleecing. H/t to David and Susan Bradley for the info
