Catherine Pegram

A judge will soon decide whether a topless dance club in downtown Bangor can stay put.The owner of Diva’s Gentleman’s Club is fighting to keep from being kicked out of her location on Harlow Street. Diane Cormier and her landlord, Thomas Brann, testified before a judge in Bangor yesterday. Brann wants to evict Cormier for not keeping up with her rent.He says he gave her a chance to move out in mid-June and not be held liable for the rest of her lease. But Cormier wanted to stay in the building while she paid back the money.Brann’s first attempt to evict Cormier was tossed out on a technicality. Brann’s lawyer says the judge in the case ran out of time yesterday.Both sides are expected to turn in more information to him by next Monday.
