Dallas hair salon owner jailed for 7 days for defying order and staying open despite Texas coronavirus restrictions.

  • Shelley Luther, owner of Salon a la Mode in Dallas appeared in court for defying a cease-and-desist letter and a restraining order.
  • The judge said she could avoid jail if she apologized for being selfish, shut the salon, and paid the fine. She refused.
  • Luther was fined $7,000 and warned that she would be fined a further $500 a day from now until Friday if the business continued to remain open.
  • Judge Eric Moyé told Luther: “The rule of law governs us. People cannot take it upon themselves to determine what they will and will not do.”
