Troubled Red Bank nightclub Fixx has bought itself a little more time to work on a legal strategy to prevent a suspension of its liquor license.
Borough attorney Dan O’Hern tells redbankgreen that the bar’s lawyer has requested and been given a postponement of a hearing, originally scheduled for Wednesday night, at which the town council is to conduct a trial over charges related to a pair of closing-time melees in September and October involving the club’s patrons.
The request was not unexpected, O’Hern said. Fixx attorney Rob Williams, he said, has also asked for discovery, or all the evidence the borough plans to use in the hearing.
The governing body will act as an adjudicator, deciding whether to suspend the bar’s license for up to 40 days.
O’Hern said he was hoping to get the hearing scheduled by mid-December.
Attorney Rob Williams could not immediately be reached for comment.
