Pink Pony files suit against Brookhaven

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

A longtime local strip club will go to court against the city of Brookhaven.  

Brookhaven has passed a law that would ban nudity with alcohol, both staples of the Pink Pony, which has been open since 1991.  

Lawyers for the club say the law puts strict rules what employees can wear, which they say is more restrictive than a bikini.

Until just last year, the club was part of DeKalb County and adhered to their laws.  The club believes it should be grandfathered in under those laws.

Lawyers for the Pink Pony contend Brookhaven redrew its districting map to ensure that the club would be a part of new city.  Club attorney Aubrey Villines says the ordinance is simply an avenue to run the club out of business.

"There is no doubt they are trying to get rid of the Pink Pony. The Pink Pony cannot function under the ordinance that Brookhaven has passed. No adult club, no strip club could," said Villines.

Villines goes on to say that the club could bring in nearly $500,000 of revenue to the new city, which could go a long way in providing Brookhaven with a police force.

Brookhaven Mayor J. Max Davis is holding a town hall meeting on Monday to discuss the creation of a Brookhaven police force.  His office says they do not comment on pending litigation.
