Sky Bar Sues North Myrtle Beach Over Noise Ordinance

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit on behalf of ‘Sky Bar’ against the city of North Myrtle Beach. The suit claims that the city’s noise ordinance is unconstitutional and violates free speech and named the city, Mayor Marilyn Hatley and Tommy Dennis the Head of the city’s Public Safety Department in hopes to stop enforcement of the new noise ordinance which puts restrictions on ‘obscene, vulgar and or profane lyrics.’ Sky Bar has been ticketed multiple times and has been warned by law enforcement under the new ordinance.
