JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A hearing scheduled for Nov. 30 could result in the permanent closure of a Jackson nightclub deemed a nuisance by city officials.
But the owner of Chuckie's Lounge tells The Clarion-Ledger that some of the city's allegations are unfounded.
Charles Thomas, who opened the bar in 2006, says what's going on is not very fair.
A bar patron was killed in June, prompting the city to file suit against the bar. The city closed the bar in August, a move Thomas said placed a financial burden on his family.
The suit against Chuckie's depicts a troublesome place.
Between March 2009 and July 2010, the suit says Jackson police were called more than a 100 times to the lounge's vicinity.
