Luau Louie’s Hula Hut has officially been closed since October, but the club continues to face legal action in Davidson County Circuit Court.
Last Friday, JuJuan Brooks filed a lawsuit against the nightclub and its managers, Jody Browne and Craig Butler, claiming the club negligently served alcohol to Arcavius McMurry, who was under 21.
According to the suit, McMurry was the driver in a car accident that injured Brooks and killed Darryl Roper, whose family also sued the club earlier this month.
The lawsuit claims that three people were arrested for underage drinking at the club on the night of the accident. The Metro Nashville Police Department received 405 calls to the club over a 10-month span.
Luau Louie’s was padlocked by MNPD in September, reopened briefly, then closed permanently in October.
The lawsuit seeks compensatory damages from Luau Louie’s management related to Brooks’ injuries and punitive damages based on the club’s negligence.
