Methadone Clinic Loses Suit Against Johnson City

A federal court has thrown out a suit by Tri-Cities Holdings that claimed the state and Johnson City were violating federal law by refusing addicts access to methadone, the Johnson City Press reports. Tri-Cities Holdings, which operates opiate addiction treatment centers across the Southeast, is seeking to open a methadone clinic in Johnson City. The company attempted to lease property within the city, but the location did not meet zoning requirements. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit dismissed the suit, reaffirming an earlier ruling and citing that plaintiffs had not identified any harm by the state, the city or the Board of Zoning Appeals.
