<a href="http://www.ca11.uscourts.gov/opinions/ops/201013871.pdf">Curves v. Spalding County, Ga</a>, No. 10-13871 (11th Cir. July 6, 2012) Per Curiam: Plaintiffs operated an alcohol-selling nightclub in Spalding County, Georgia. Defendant Spalding County’s ordinances prohibit nude dancing where alcohol is sold. Plaintiffs sued, challenging the constitutionality of the ordinances and asserting claims for malicious arrest and malicious prosecution. The District Court granted summary judgment in favor of Defendants on Plaintiffs’ constitutional claims. The District Court also granted summary judgment in favor of Defendants on Plaintiffs’ malicious arrest and malicious prosecution claims. Plaintiffs appeal the District Court’s summary judgment ruling on the merits. In addition, Plaintiffs also question the impartiality of the District Judge -- former Judge Jack Camp -- and seek retroactive recusal and vacatur of summary judgment. We affirm the District Court’s decision granting summary judgment in favor of Defendants.
