LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A man who wants to open a strip club near Grand Island in south-central Nebraska has sued opponents to his plan and the Hall County Board of Supervisors.

Attorneys for Shane Harrington, of Lincoln, filed the lawsuit Friday in U.S. District Court in Lincoln. He’s seeking $110 million from the board, several named individuals and everyone who signed petitions against his proposal.

Hall County Attorney Jack Zitterkopf had no immediate response Sunday, saying he hadn’t seen the lawsuit.

Harrington’s lawsuit includes allegations of defamation, interference with business relationships, antitrust violations and constitutional violations regarding free speech, equal protection and due process.

Harrington also wants a judgment against restrictions for sexual-oriented businesses in the Hall County zoning resolutions.
