Judge will rule on Suite Ultralounge in 30 days

After hearing from Mount Vernon residents, the liquor board and representatives from the violence-plagued Suite Ultralounge, a judge will rule within 30 days. That's according to Sun reporter Justin Fenton. More info here.

Talk about anti-climactic. The judge heard from both sides and then decided to decide something soon. I'll keep you posted when the ruling arrives.

How can they let this club stay open? Are they just waiting for someone to killed? At the very least, this club should be closed until the judge makes a decision. Why will nobody in the government step up and protect their citizens? This is ridiculous!

Due process of law

Someone told me it has been permanently shut down as of today, any truth to this?

I've lived in Mt. Vernon for years and have really never had any problems. In truth, its one of the better areas of Baltimore city. However, thanks to clubs like 'Suite Ultralounge,' hoards of hoodlums and street gangs are now running freely and harrasing city residents. So now people are either moving out in droves or hiding out to avoid being the next victims. Can you blame them? When people see that the state gov't does nothing to protect them or their neighborhoods they lose hope. At what point will a city stand up to protect its citizens is exactly the right question to pose here. What's happening in Mt. Vernon is shameful. The fact that this 'club' remains open as dozens of residents continue to complain, shows a complete disregard to the well being of a cultural neighborhood and its residents.
