Augusta strip clubs lose legal battle with city
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Augusta strip clubs have to stop serving alcohol or go without strippers to keep an alcohol license.
Today, commissioners tell us a judge dismissed a case filed by the clubs’ owner against the city.
Two years ago, the owner of Discotheque and Vegas Showgirls sued the city over a new ordinance that would close strip clubs in downtown Augusta.
In the lawsuit the owner claims the city unfairly tried to eliminate strip clubs since the 90s.
