Redner sues Tampa, wants fair treatment

June 19, 2003

Did Joe Redner get a raw deal? Looks like he may have. After an appeals court forced the Tampa City Council to revisit their denial of a liquor permit, they may have unlawfully muscled Redner into accepting less than ideal conditions in order to open his business:

To get wet zoning for the property, Redner said he had to agree to a year of probation and a ban on package alcohol sales.

“They take people’s rights away, and they are so cavalier,” Redner said. “It’s not right.”

The council is not allowed to impose extra restrictions on an applicant, Redner said. But a business owner can voluntarily agree to more conditions.

“The City Council uses that to coerce people to put conditions on themselves or leave empty-handed,” said Luke Lirot, Redner’s attorney.
