After a legal battle with the City of Vicksburg, Jacques’ has been allowed to reopen.
Judge Debra M. Giles handed down a ruling on Thursday that allows Jacques’ to resume their operations.
“I am thrilled for our employees more than anything,” said owner Jay Parmegiani. “Christmas is coming and they all were worried about providing for their children.”
Jacques’ was ordered to close back in August after the City of Vicksburg argued that they were a public nuisance.
A series of incidents occurred at the nightclub, 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 July 24, the City of Vicksburg filed a motion in Chancery Court to close Jacques’ “to prevent the suffering of immediate and irreparable injury and harm,” according to Assistant City Attorney and City Prosecutor Monica Allen.
Chancellor Vicki R. Barnes of Warren County, first presided over the case but quickly recused herself which resulted in it going to Sunflower County.
