The Tennessee Attorney General’s office returned an alcohol permit to the Murfreesboro Pike nightclub Klub Cirok on Monday, following a lawsuit that was filed two weeks ago.
The ex-wife of a now-deceased former owner of the club ripped the permit off the wall last month . The woman turned the permit over to the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission — but the commission placed the matter “under investigation” and didn’t give the permit back, according to a lawsuit filed by Klub Cirok.
A hearing in the case was scheduled for Tuesday. Instead, the case was voluntarily dismissed without prejudice on Monday, meaning Klub Cirok can bring future claims against the TABC.
Club co-owner Joe Savage told The City Paper that a state attorney returned the license on Monday.
