Nashville bar owners seeking restraining order against Metro, state officials


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A group of Nashville bar owners are requesting a restraining order against Metro and state officials, calling COVID-19 related restrictions unconstitutional.  

Businesses including The Local Spot, Harry O’s Steakhouse, Kid Rock’s Big Honkytonk, Honkytonk Central filed the motion Monday. It asks for a temporary restraining order against Metro officials that would prevent them from being able to close down these businesses. It also calls for a restraining order against Metro officials trying to prosecute citations two of the businesses have incurred.  

The motion claims treating limited service restaurants different from full-service restaurants is discriminatory and unconstitutional.  

This restraining order is in addition to other lawsuits these businesses have filed.
