Strip club owners file lawsuit claiming $5 per customer 'pole tax' is unconstitutional
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Strip club owners in Houston are now taking their fight against a pole tax to court.
Lawyers representing Houston strip club executives have now filed a lawsuit claiming the new $5 per customer fee is unconstitutional.
The city passed the fee back in June. It's expected to raise about $3 million per year; money that will be used to help the city process untested rape kits.
