Judge Denies Move to Stop 'Rocky Top' Vote

U.S. District Judge Tom Varlan today denied a move for an injunction filed by the House of Bryant Publications to stop Lake City’s proposed name change to Rocky Top. The company owns the rights to the famous bluegrass ballad “Rocky Top.” Judge Varlan said attorneys for House of Bryant showed no reason why he should delay the vote while they appealed his decision dismissing a lawsuit against the name change.
