A lawsuit against the town of Buchanan is moving forward.
WDBJ7 was the first to tell you earlier this year how business owner Ken Bray was suing the town for $2.8 million.
Bray says the town is keeping him from earning a living, after it refused to let him hold a teen dance at his Glow-A-Rama entertainment complex on Main Street.
The town says Bray didn't have a permit and it's against town code to have a teen dance.
A federal judge has set a hearing for August 1st.
At that point, Bray's attorney will have to back up the claims before the judge will decide if the case moves forward or is dismissed.
