BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The cities of Birmingham, Trussville and
a group of citizens have appealed to the Alabama Supreme Court the
recent Jefferson County Circuit Court decision that allowed a strip
club to operate.

Records show the cities and the Citizens to Protect Derby
Parkway filed three separate appeals with the state's high court on
March 11.

The 2009 court case in Jefferson County Circuit Court was
sparked by the city of Birmingham refusing to issue a club at 2404
Derby Way dance permits and a liquor license transfer.

Sensations opened in Birmingham's Liberty Highlands Neighborhood
on Feb. 11. Opponents say the club attracts the wrong type of
people to the area.

Birmingham lawyer Don Blankenship says Sensations remains open
for business.
