Supreme Court sides with Brookhaven in Pink Pony lawsuit

Supreme Court sides with Brookhaven in Pink Pony lawsuit

BROOKHAVEN, Ga. -- The Supreme Court of Georgia has dismissed a strip club's lawsuit against the City of Brookhaven.

The Pink Pony opened on Corporate Boulevard near Buford Highway in November 1990. It was licensed by DeKalb County to allow nude dancing while serving alcohol and food.

Brookhaven became a city on Dec. 17, 2012. The Pink Pony is located in the newly incorporated city's southernmost area.

Less than a month after achieving cityhood, Brookhaven's city council passed a Sexually Oriented Business Code that prohibits alcohol sales in businesses featuring fully nude dancing.
