Devine Street sex shop Taboo is closing its doors after years-long legal battle
Best Adult Novelty Store | Taboo | Goods and Services
Taboo opened a few weeks before Christmas and almost immediately came under fire from city leaders. They said an adult business in that location, the block of Devine Street , would be a magnet for crime and a drag on surrounding commercial and residential areas. City council action and litigation quickly followed. The city responded in part by providing White with a list of 45 other sites where he could relocate. But last month, federal Judge Terry Wooten issued another ruling in favor of the city. Last Friday, a city attorney notified the business it was violating zoning rules and had seven days to close.
