Maxim Cabaret vs. City of Sandy Springs heard on appeal
The Georgia Supreme Court heard the case of Maxim Cabaret Inc. et al. vs. the City of Sandy Springs on March 5.
A strip club in Sandy Springs, Georgia is appealing a Fulton County Court ruling that upholds as constitutional city ordinances banning the sale of alcohol in adult establishments. Attorneys for Maxim argue that the trial court erred in ruling that the city had repealed rather than amended ordinances affecting adult businesses and that therefore, Maxim’s challenges of those ordinances were moot.
The original case revolved around Sandy Springs adopting its own adult establishments licensing ordinance, which included a ban on alcohol in adult establishments.
Georgia Supreme Court case number S18A0496
