Updated: Jun 28, 2020

Portland in the 1980s brought amazing music to the masses. A major part of the PDX  music scene were the popular nightclubs all over the city. One of the most popular clubs, The Starry Night, kept dark secrets behind it’s doors, secrets that would take decades to fully unravel. Join Emily and Alisha while they discuss what happened to Tim Moreau, and the part  Larry Hurwitz played in it.

It is mentioned that Larry Hurwitz would drop the lawsuit if Willamette Week would run the corrections he requested.Correction, the agreement was that he wouldn't file the lawsuit in the first place.

Hurwitz was not required to wear an ankle monitor during his entire post-supervision release period. It was for the initial few months. Once it was removed, he then traveled to California where he was arrested again.


It looks like Larry is still calling jail home. A plea bargain was presented to him, but he turned it down. Jim thinks that his lawyer will challenge the traffic stop and try to get the evidence suppressed, but not motion has been filed, so only time will tell. More on that: Plea Bargain Deal Falls Through in Hurwitz Case
