A judge found Tuesday that the manager of Glendale's only sexually oriented book and video store failed to comply with her order to remove the shop's controversial video display booths in which sexual acts allegedly occurred.
Glendale Municipal Court Judge Cheryl Krott ordered Gary Enea, manager of Unique News & Video on San Fernando Road, to remove the booths by noon Friday.
In a ruling on the matter last month, Krott ordered Enea to remove the booths by July 8. But a police lieutenant investigating the shop July 9 discovered they were still intact.
Roger Jon Diamond, Enea's attorney, was unavailable Tuesday, and Glendale attorney Alfred Calabro represented Enea during the hearing.
Enea said Diamond neglected to tell him the booths had to be removed from the store, Calabro told the court. Although Enea was present at the time the order was made, he contended he did not comprehend it.
