On Maxim’s

The Brookside restaurant Maxim’s claimed in a federal lawsuit today that City Hall’s restriction of live entertainment is unconstitutional, and it asked the court to block Stockton from enforcing Maxim’s lack of a permit (which it was denied by the City Council last week).


A judge is scheduled Friday to hear Maxim’s request for a temporary restraining order. The restaurant’s claim is that requiring a permit for live entertainment restricts constitutional free speech.


On the case is First Amendment lawyer George Mull of Sacramento. He used to own the First Amendment Gentlemen’s Club north of Chico (A report on that is here). He said today that he sold the club in 2001 and is “getting away from all the adult stuff.”


He’s getting older, he said.


David LeBeouf, who represented Maxim’s in its permit application and who is working with Mull on the federal case, said today that hip-hop might once again be in store at the restaurant if a judge grants the TRO.
