PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island's Supreme Court has decided not to hear the appeal of a Providence strip club that had its license suspended after police found performers were offering more than lap dances.

The Providence Journal reports the owners of the Satin Doll won't appeal the decision.

The city's Board of Licenses in December suspended the club's licenses for 20 days and ordered it to pay $4,000 in fines after finding that dancers had solicited undercover police officers for prostitution.

A hearing officer for the state Department of Business Regulation last month cut the fine to $3,000, ruling that the club did not knowingly permit the violations to occur, but was still liable.

The club reopened in January after serving the suspension.
