JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

It's happened again.

Black Diamonds strip club forced to close its doors for the second time in two months.

It's the second case club owners have been hit with for failure to pay a court ordered settlement.The first one involved their other strip club Danny's downtown.

Friday morning Black Diamonds strip club was seized for a second time by the Hinds county sheriff's department.
The club shut down for the same reason as before, for failure to pay a 60-thousand dollar court judgment to Marteze Harris, a customer who claimed he was injured in the club by a bouncer.

Ben Wilson, the Plaintiff's  Attorney said, 
"In order to unlock those doors at this point, It's certainly my clients position that that judgment will need to be paid in full it's unfortunate it's come to this again, but it has.

After the club was seized in September, club owner Dax Owens filed for chapter 13 bankruptcy.  Making it appear to the court that his finances were depleted, Owens was able to open the strip club back up.

Now it appears Owens may be changing the clubs identity to avoid payment.
He put a picture on Instagram, announcing the strip club will now be called Diamond Dolls Showplace.
They plan to have a grand opening on November 9th.
Attorney's for the plaintiff say it's just another ploy not to pay up.

"They want to get out of this and essentially delay it as long as they can in hopes that it's just going to go away," said Wilson.

We reached out to their attorney, but our calls were not returned.

Friday the trustee in the bankruptcy case filed a motion to dismiss Dax Owens bankruptcy.
The reason, Owens has failed to make monthly payments to the trustee.
