Remember Club Aura in Northern Liberties that I hope I would have to never write about any more? Well, Philadelinquency will soon be headed to Federal court at 6th and Market over it.
This is my take on this case, since I’m one of the defendants mentioned: It wasn’t a secret while owner Marc Stein was trying to get a SAOL permit and operate without it that Club Aura wasn’t being very neighborly. Taking the neighborhood and all who have written about the Club Aura escapade to Federal Court to exact revenge isn’t going to win over any hearts and minds in Northern Liberties, much less the 6th Police District or the City of Philadelphia.
Throughout the Federal complaint no substantive mentions were ever made of the shooting that occurred outside Club Aura.
As this case is total bullshit, and a SLAPP suit if I ever saw one, Philadelinquency has retained representation of Philadelphia’s pre-eminent First Amendment rights attorney A. Jordan Rushie and nationally-renowned First Amendment attorney Marc J. Randazza to represent myself and the Philadelinquency blog on this case. Incidentally, both attorneys are also representing Kate Gosselin of TLC’s TV reality show Kate+8.
