Miami Beach's only fully nude strip joint was shut down by city officials back on January 10 after four adults -- including a Club Madonna dancer -- allegedly forced a 13-year-old to dance at the club.

At the time, City Manager Jimmy Morales deemed Club Madonna "an actual threat to the public health, welfare, and safety of the public."

The club's owner, Leroy Griffith, went to federal court days later to seek an injunction against the city's decision.

That strategy seems to have worked. On Monday, Morales stayed his order to shutter the club but also noted: "Investigations, both criminal and civil, remain ongoing."

Spotted in a blue sweater on the sidewalk near Club Madonna, Griffith didn't gloat.

"We're happy. We're open," he said. "That's all I can say right now. But you'll hear more from me down the road."

Lenny Lebowitz it is the employers responsibility to verify age and legal status ! Furthermore her parents did not know she was forced by sex traffickers .

Federal judged didn't agree with the Miami Beach city managers decision.  Which means Miami Beach did not handle this properly.  Many clubs in Miami Beach have run scams on tourists and have not been closed down.  In this case not enough evidence was shown where in the  popular clubs in Miami Beach have a slew of police records.

Madonna's has the city of Miami Beach in their corrupt back pockets. This comes to no surprise.

"An actual threat to the public health, welfare, and safety of the public."  Isn't the city manager describing the police department?  Did they shut the police department down yet?

It was a FEDERAL judge that struck down the city's order. MB has new officials in power that are trying to clean up the city.
