MADISON (WKOW) — The owner of a Madison nightclub is taking steps toward suing the city alder who started a petition to have the club’s liquor license revoked.
Filings for the lawsuit claim alder David Ahrens made false statements about violence, drugs, and prostitution at Visions Nightclub.
It comes after a shooting in December at the club.
Four people have been arrested in connection with it.
A number of people were hurt.
The nightclub’s attorney sent a statutory notice of claim to Ahrens and city clerk Maribeth Witzel-Behl Thursday.
