Woman sues Chesterfield County over permit process

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - An update to our story about a lawsuit filed against Chesterfield County...

The county has filed a motion to dismiss the suit filed in December by Sophie King.

King says she's a spiritual advisor, but the county classifies her as a fortune-teller. Her business was shut down in August because she lacked the proper permits.

King's attorneys plan to file a motion to continue on with the case.

A federal hearing could be scheduled in the next two months.
