From the April 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

A breach-of-contract lawsuit against the owners of the defunct JP’s Lounge (2412 Wisconsin Ave.) was dismissed on March 11 because the plaintiff couldn’t locate the defendants, court records show. The plaintiff, Michael Papanicolas, is himself a former owner of the strip club.

Last July, Papanicolas filed suit against the company he sold the club to—Wisconsin Ventures, LLC—as well as its representative, Paul Kadlick. His complaint alleged that the defendants still owed him $375,000 from the 2012 sale of the club. (Two months after the August, 2012 sale, ownership of the club was transferred to a company called The Vice Group, also represented by Kadlick.)

The court granted Papanicolas two extensions of the deadline to prove that he had served the defendants with summonses, but he was not able to do so. The case was dismissed without prejudice, meaning that Papanicolas can re-file the suit if he discovers a way to serve papers on the defendants.
