The owner of a massage parlor has sued the city for failing to respond to the business' request for a license. The Body Centre on El Toro Road applied for a massage permit in June. Owner Christine Bui Vo charges in the suit that the city failed to respond to the application within 60 days, as required by the city's Municipal Code. City Atty. Greg Diaz said the city is still waiting for the results of a mandatory state background check on Vo.

The city has agreed to pay about $50,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by seven people whose cars were engulfed by water on Lake Forest Drive during a 1997 flood, attorneys said. Victims blamed the flood on faulty storm drains and sued the city and the county in 1998 for about $50,000 per person plus damages to their vehicles, said the plaintiffs' attorney, James Daily. A city official said the settlement was less about accountability and more about saving money.
