City Attorney Says Council Turned Down Butler Offer

(ANGOLA) - Angola City Attorney Kim Shoup says the Angola City Council turned down an offer from Showgirls owner Alva Butler on Monday night to settle the civil rights lawsuit that was filed against the city over a year ago. Shoup said the offer was discussed during a five minute executive session. Formal action took place to continue the legal process when the Council went back into its regular meeting.

Butler filed an appeal with the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals after U.S. District Judge Robert Miller denied a preliminary injunction motion on New Years Eve which prevented Butler from opening up his business.

Butler's claim that his first amendment rights were violated by the city of Angola survived the 75 page ruling that was issued by Miller.

Butler has been fighting the city since August of 2012 when he bought the former Slider's Restaurant and 101 Lounge during an auction in an effort to open up an adult nightclub in the building.
