Nude club in Camco ends fight on alcohol

MOUNT EPHRAIM — A nude-dancing club here has dropped a legal fight to operate as a BYOB.

Jersey Girls Gentlemen's Cabaret sued Mount Ephraim last month after its operator was repeatedly cited for allowing patrons to bring their own beer and wine. The club, a longtime fixture on the Black Horse Pike, had tried to introduce the BYOB policy in May.

An attorney for the club voluntarily dismissed the federal suit on Friday. The lawyer, Stephen Edelstein, could not be reached Tuesday.

"We're pleased with the result," said an attorney for the borough, Eric Riso.

The voluntary dismissal came after a number of court setbacks for Jersey Girls. U.S. District Court Judge Joseph Irenas on June 23 dismissed the club's request that he bar enforcement of the borough's BYOB ordinance.
