“It would go out of business and die,” he said. “I think that’s unfair when they haven’t done anything wrong.”
But Scott Bergthold, an attorney for Doraville, said nude dancing in a sexually oriented business isn’t protected under the Georgia Constitution.
“The historical records of the Georgia Constitution don’t support a claimed right to nude dancing,” he said.
Oasis’ case is similar to the Pink Pony’s claim against the city of Brookhaven, which was founded in 2012.
The Georgia Supreme Court ruled in October that Brookhaven has the right to regulate sexually oriented businesses.
The Brookhaven City Council then voted in November to allow the Pink Pony to continue providing nude dancers and alcohol in exchange for a $225,000 annual fee.
