Damon Dash Served With Court Summons For Illegally Selling Alcohol At DD172

September 9, 2011


The music mogul and associates were accused of being a “public nuisance” and having six counts of selling alcohol without a license.

Though he moved out of his DD172 space in New York City, New York’s Tribeca neighborhood in June, Damon Dash is in legal hot water for what occurred there.

According to The Village Voice, policemen served the property with a court summons and order to show cause yesterday at 4:30 p.m. Dash and associates are accused of six counts of storing and selling alcoholic beverages without a license. DD172 was first caught violating the liquor code in November 2010 and this past May.

The violations “were conducted in an open and notorious manner and the operators of this establishment appear to have evinced a ‘business as usual’ attitude in the subject premises.”

The club’s actions apparently constitute a “public nuisance,” and plaintiffs are seeking a preliminary injunction from the judge as well as a restraining order.
