The Dead Goat Saloon wins in a lawsuit brought against it by the LDS Church. The Church maintained that, although the Saloon/strip club's door was more than 165 feet from a main "gateway corridor" street, its stage was less than 165 feet "as the mole crawls." KUTV news reports that "In her 29-page ruling, [Judge Denise] Lindberg noted how strange it was for lawyers representing The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the city attorney to sit at the same table during oral arguments since the church was suing the city."
