Judge Denies Emergency Hearing In Octomom Case

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — An effort to cancel a strip-club performance by the woman known as “Octomom” has been denied by a Florida judge.

Circuit Judge Timothy McCarthy has ruled against holding an emergency hearing requested by T’s Lounge in West Palm Beach, saying the situation does not “constitute a legal emergency.”

T’s Lounge was trying to thwart Nadya Suleman’s scheduled appearance Friday at a competing club. She had signed a contract to dance topless at T’s this week but later backed out.

Suleman’s show can go on, though a breach-of-contract lawsuit filed against her by T’s will likely proceed.

Messages left for her spokeswoman were not immediately returned Wednesday.
