The nuns of a convent in suburban Chicago have filed suit against a neighboring strip club, saying it creates a common law nuisance and is operating in violation of state law.
The Missionary Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo, of Melrose Park, contend in their lawsuit that Club Allure, which abuts their property to the south, breaks a state law prohibiting adult entertainment clubs within close proximity to schools or places of worship. But they further contend that they are constantly exposed to indignities like “public violence, drunkenness, and litter,” along with discarded contraceptive packages, even used syringes.
I assume it was legal but why would you build a strip club next to a convent? That just seems like a jerk move from the start.
