Hot Dog Stand Dispute

After more than a year in court, two sides fighting over a hot dog stand in Monroe are working with a mediator to try to cut through the legal mustard.

A business called the Dog Pound is suing Monroe after a plan to sell hot dogs from a cart was rejected. The lawsuit was moved to federal court in Detroit in 2009 because the owners raised constitutional claims.

Former Oakland County Judge Fred Mester is serving as a mediator. The owners of the hog dog cart say Monroe won’t allow it because other food businesses fear competition.

Federal Judge David Lawson wants to get an update on the case in February.
