City of Vicksburg asks for reconsideration on Jacques’ ruling

The City of Vicksburg is requesting further discussion against the ruling that Jacques’ can reopen.

Jacques’ was ordered to close back in August after the City of Vicksburg argued that they were a public nuisance, and on Thursday, it was ruled that Jacques’ will be allowed to resume business.

A series of incidents occurred at the nightclub leading to the temporary restraining order, including when four security guards were shot. Also an incident was reported involving a 20-year-old at the establishment along with a shooting that left over 100 bullet casings in the parking lot.

On Thursday, Mayor George Flaggs said the city isn’t done with this fight just yet, and the city filed a motion to reconsider on that order.

“The City of Vicksburg recently received a ruling from the Sunflower County Chancery Court dissolving its prior injunctive order indicating that the order provided the City with no incentive to seek setting a final hearing on the merits and rendered the injunctive relief to be permanent,” he said in a written statement.

“The Legal Department has filed a Motion for Reconsideration of the Court’s Order because the City has tried to set this matter for a final hearing with the Court so that this matter could be heard in its entirety. We have always stated that we will abide by the Court’s Order and mandates as it relates to the safe operation of Jacques.”
