Will battle over the botched 2009 gay bar raid soon come to a close?

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed

Dan Grossman, attorney for patrons of the Atlanta Eagle the night the gay bar was raided, says courts are the worst place to solve problems. His nemesis in recent years, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, agrees wholeheartedly.

At a recent LGBT town hall forum to discuss the 2009 police raid, Grossman invited Reed to “do lunch.” The mayor accepted.

Although Reed himself has not reached out, as of press time, to Grossman to take him up on the offer for lunch or a face-to-face meeting, the city’s attorneys and Grossman were set to meet on Wednesday, Nov. 9, to discuss the second pending Eagle lawsuit as well as other issues.
