Jack's, popular nightery on the old Chapel Hill Road, filed for
damages through his attorney, Daniel M. Williams Jr.
Named as defendants in separate suits were the Durham Herald

Durham Sun) and John N. Buck, the ABC officer.
Each of the two suits asked for $250,000 actual damages and
$250,000 punitive damages.
In a statement to The Daily Tar Heel, Lambda Chi President
Curtis Fields explained that couples were dressed in Bermuda
shorts with the girls wearing (over their clothes) night shirts which

In each of the suits, Hopkins set forth the allegation that the

owned and published by the Durham Herald Company."
