During a six-hour hearing Tuesday, the owner of a nightclub gave reasons why the business, temporarily closed by a judge’s order, should remain open. Prosecutors argued the Platinum Lounge is a public nuisance and the problems its existence creates cannot be controlled except through permanent closure. Bulloch County Superior Court Judge John R. Turner ordered both the Platinum Lounge, 2 Proctor St., and Primetime Lounge, 608 Northside Drive W., owned by Karen Pittman Brown of Bulloch Investors LLC, temporarily closed Nov. 12 after a man was killed Nov. 9 at Primetime Lounge.
