Tattoo suit dismissed

Over a year ago, Mesa rejected a tattoo parlor in the Dobson Ranch area. At the time, we discussed that a lawsuit was likely and there was a risk for it to turn into a disaster. It turns out that we were wrong.

The judge has dismissed the lawsuit and it appears that the issue is dead. The formal ruling as not released yet, so its not exactly clear what the judge was thinking, but unlike the Tempe issue, it doesn't appear that the Goldwater Institute or any other litigation-friendly thinktank jumped to the tattoo artist's aid.

Now, over a year and a half later, you have to wonder how much money was lost and if the business owner would have been better off to set up shop elsewhere.
