Starship court hearing delayed by weather

by Sarah Fay Campbell

The court hearing in the Coweta Starship store's appeal of a citation for violating the county's obscenity law has been postponed because of weather conditions. 

The hearing was scheduled to be held in Coweta Superior Court Thursday at 1 p.m. All Coweta Superior Court and Coweta State Court hearings are canceled until Friday.

On May 17, the store was issued a citation for violating Coweta County's prohibition on selling sex toys for other than allowed uses. Allowed uses include "bona fide" medical, scientific, educational, law enforcement and judicial purposes. 

On Aug. 6, following a hearing in Coweta Magistrate Court, Chief Magistrate Jim Stripling ruled that the store had violated the ordinance and issued a $205 fine. Attorneys for Starship filed an appeal of that ruling.
