CHEEKTOWAGA – The state liquor authority’s case against Tryst Gentleman’s Club is moving to the hearing stage after the club’s parent company pleaded not guilty to three charges.

A spokesperson for the state liquor authority tells Cheektowaga Chronicle that Buffalo Rebirth, LLC pleaded not guilty on December 14th to the three charges issued by the authority on December 5th.

The next step is to hold a hearing on the matter in front of an Administrative Law Judge.  The date has not been finalized as of December 20th.

At the hearing, both the authority and Buffalo Rebirth, LLC may produce witnesses, cross-examine witnesses and submit evidence in support of their case.  The law judge’s decision is not final and only the members of the authority may make a final determination.

The authority voted to suspend the club’s liquor license during an emergency hearing on December 6th.
