SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A judge has ordered an iconic downtown Sioux City hot dog joint to pay more than $72,000 to a partial owner who said he’d never received his share of the business’ profits.

The Sioux City Journal (https://bit.ly/1S4U6oG ) reports that District Judge Steven Andreasen ruled Friday that Milwaukee Wiener House owners Mike and John Eliades never paid Gus Demetroulis, who has owned 10 percent of the restaurant since 2004.

The Eliades said during a December trial in Woodbury County District Court that they’d made annual cash distributions to Demetroulis from 2004 to 2009.

Andreasen found that the Demetroulis received no cash distributions since the men signed the operating agreement in 2004, but that the Eliades paid themselves their share of the income instead.

The Eliades’ attorney, Scott Rhinehard, says he has no comment on the ruling.
