Uniontown Lion's Den closed
by court order
Lion's Den manager sets out signage explaining their store is closed.
The Uniontown Lion's Den has pulled
down their signs, turned off the "OPEN" sign
and closed for business after a court
from Indiana Superior Court arrived August 3.
As of now the Lion's Den has a
"Closed Temporarily by Court Order" sign on their door.
The Uniontown protesters met and decided to remain
at their protest even during the "temporarily closed"
period until the Lion's Den is permanently closed.
The Uniontown Protest began July 28, 2005. Aug. 3, 2010-the last customer
UPDATE AUGUST 4
Protesters and County Commissioners commit to
keep Lion's Den closed
The Uniontown protesters met on Sunday, August 1 and vowed to stay at their post until
the Lion's Den closes for good. On Tuesday, August 3 protesters met County Commissioners
at their scheduled bi-monthly meeting. The protesters, county commissioners and
County Attorney Susan Beavers committed vigorously fight any appeal the Lion's Den might file.
The Lion's Den will discover there is no longer a timid Jackson County government too scared to fight back.
All parties agreed to work closely together and vowed expense will no longer be a
consideration of legal action regarding the Uniontown Lion's Den
While most of us expect the Lion's Den to appeal, the Lion's Den has yet to make comment.
It makes no difference to us. The combined force of the Uniontown residents and County
Government are prepared to fight them every part of the way.
The protesters are also planning to renew "extra curricular" activity they did at the beginning
of theirprotest should the Lion's Den appeal. Many residents met with the Protesters and are
joining with us to on the protest until the Lion's Den permanently closes.
Uniontown Lion's Den loses BIG
in Summary Judgment Court Ruling!!
Judge Heimann of the Superior Court of Indiana issued a multifacet ruling that went totally
against the Lion's Den in Uniontown. The Superior Court found the Jackson County Ordinance
for Adult Entertainment was constitutional; The Lion's Den cannot claim "grandfather" privilege;
The Lion's Den is subject to all regulating laws of Jackson County including limited hours;
Jackson County fulfilled it's constitutional requirement by allowing dozens of legal locations for
adult businesses set apart from residential; The Lion's Den has not even applied for a business
license and can be subject to all applicable fines, although the court did not specify or apply
them in this case. The court then issued a permaneant injunction against the Uniontown
Lion's Den to continue operation.
"It is a complete and total victory for the residents of Uniontown and the protesters who have
been out there for five years," said Scott Bergthold, the special Constitutional Attorney hired
by the residents to prosecute the judgement against the Lion's Den.
As of now Jackson County Government can take immediate action against the Lion's
sending the Sheriff to immediatley padlock the Lion's Den doors plus other actions including
possible fines for continued operation.
The Lion's Den can appeal if they want. The protesters are ready if they do. They plan on staying
out front protesting and taking pictures until the Lion's Den is closed. Any appeals are irrelavent
to them. They have proved it by 5 years of 24/7 protest in front of the Uniontown Lion's Den.
A little longer will not bother them one bit. It is totally an serious uphill battle for the Lion's Den
if they want to try to appeal. Further upper courts have already ruled the same on this issue in
recent years and the Lion's Den has faint hope of anything being overturned.
Stay tuned for updates.
