Anchorage seeks court contempt hearing against defiant diner

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An Anchorage diner owner who kept his restaurant open for dine-in service in defiance of a coronavirus order says the business will be open for takeout only amid concerns with possible fines. The Anchorage Daily News reports Andy Kriner made the announcement in a video in which he said the restaurant cannot afford to pay daily fines that could grow in size. He and his wife own Kriner’s Diner. The Municipality of Anchorage has requested a contempt of court hearing after the owners defied a judge’s ruling to halt indoor dining service and comply with the coronavirus order.
