Twins Bar Owner Says He Will Sue City After Duluth Council Revokes License

The Duluth City Council voted unanimously Monday to approve a resolution that would revoke the Twins Bar's liquor license.

The bar's owner said he may now sue the city.

Carl Green asked the council Monday to table the resolution revoking the bar's license and to consider the license surrendered, making the resolution moot.

The council said they couldn't table the resolution because it had been decided by the city's Alcohol, Gambling, and Tobacco Commission during a formal hearing. 

Green said charges leading to the bar's eviction and license revocation were bogus. He added his federal rights need to be addressed.

"I would like for this committee to consider this license surrendered and that this be a moot issue, but it's your call. But if you revocate[sic] this license, I'm going to sue the city, I'm going to sue the police department, and I'm not sure who else," said Green.

Councilor Jay Fosle explained the council would not be able to conduct a hearing. He was among those who sat in on the initial Alcohol, Gambling, and Tobacco hearing.

"There's a lot of issues behind this and I sat through the whole thing and it was about an hour long. I recommend that we approve this resolution and if you have to sue the City of Duluth, than that's what you got to do," said Fosle to Green.

Last month, a member of Duluth's Alcohol, Gambling, and Tobacco Commission told Eyewitness News there have been gun issues, fights and even allegations of prostitution at the bar.

The resolution passed unanimously. An eviction notice was posted at the Twins Bar, on East 4th Street, last month.
