Nashville North was unsuccessful in court Tuesday in its bid to appeal a revocation of its liquor licence by the Alcohol and Gaming and Commission of Ontario (AGCO). An AGCO spokesperson said yesterday (Thursday) the appeal was dismissed in Divisional Court in Toronto and $2,500 in legal costs were awarded to the registrar of the commission. He said the court stayed the revocation for 15 days, however, to allow the Norval bar's owners time to determine if they will appeal the decision to the Ontario Court of Appeal. If they decide to appeal, the bar's liquor licence will remain valid and they will be able to continue selling alcohol until the court makes a decision on the appeal. Brian Mitchell, a security and operations consultant with Nashville North, said Thursday he couldn't comment because he hadn't seen the court decision yet. However, when asked if they planned to appeal the decision, Mitchell said, "I don't think we spent $400,000 fighting this to bail now. "Nashville North is not going anywhere, period," said Mitchell. The AGCO revoked the bar's liquor licence in December, 2004 after AGCO board members found the bar violated the Liquor Control Act on several occasions in 2003 by serving liquor to intoxicated patrons, allowing overcrowding and not being in the public interest. In January 2005 the AGCO issued another notice of proposal to revoke Nashville North's liquor licence based on several incidents alleged to have occurred in the bar in 2004.
