Atlanta suburb fights strip clubs

  • Follow Latest News

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — The city of Sandy Springs has filed a civil lawsuit claiming four adult entertainment businesses habitually violated local vice ordinances.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the civil lawsuit filed Tuesday is the latest in a series of legal battles between the city and the clubs, which have fought back with their own legal challenges.

The lawsuit names Flashers, Mardi Gras, Main Stage/The Coronet Club and Inserection. Alan Begner, who represents one of the clubs, said he believes the lawsuit is “harassment” and he plans to file a countersuit.

City officials claim the clubs have flouted local ordinances for years and cite violations that include live sex acts performed on customers. It says five private investigators conducted the surveillance at the adult clubs to build the case.

Filing lawsuits and

Filing lawsuits and countersuits is the American way of arriving at a decision. I wonder if the judge will allow the juries in these trials to visit the clubs to gather their own evidence?
