The owner of a Gilbert salon where fish nibble dead skin off
your feet will get another chance to convince a court she has a
constitutional right to do that.

The Arizona Court of Appeals has decided to hear arguments
Wednesday on a civil suit involving a Gilbert spa owner whose
clients paid to have fish eat dead skin off their feet.
The suit was filed by the Goldwater Institute on behalf of spa
owner Cindy Vong.
A lower court had earlier dismissed the suit.
The Arizona Republic reports the Arizona Board of Cosmetology
threatened to pull Vong's license in early 2009 if she didn't stop
offering the pedicure service. The board alleged the fish were
unsafe because they could not be sterilized.
Vong says the board's ruling hurt her financially.
The Institute sued in December 2009, alleging the board lacked
jurisdiction over the practice because it was not a cosmetic
service and that it violated Vong's right to run her business.
