"Tell the people their underwear must come down," said Myra Taylor, the mayor of Opa-locka, Florida.

If you read the article at that link and noted that the residents live on "Ali Baba Avenue," you may also be interested to know that Opa-locka was specifically designed to have a "One Thousand and One Nights" theme. Its city hall resembles a mosque and it has other streets named Sultan Avenue, Caliph Street, Sinbad Avenue, Harem Avenue, and (sort of consistently) Sesame Street.
There is some room for debate as to what attorneys can recover under 42 U.S.C. § 1988, the provision of federal civil rights law that awards fees to a prevailing party. Probably outside the scope of that debate: health insurance, mini-blinds, and dry-cleaning bills. See Binta v. Gordon, slip op. at 1 (6th Cir. Mar. 20, 2013); see also id. at 22 (citing Alliance to End Repression v. City of Chicago, 356 F.3d 767, 773 (7th Cir. 2004) ("The class action device is not intended to be a lawyers' gravy train.")).
