Nuns Sue Their Neighbor: a Strip Club

www.chicagotribune.com Published: June 17, 2014

A group of nuns is suing to shut down a strip club next to their convent in Stone Park that the sisters say keeps them awake at night, according to The Chicago Tribune.



The Missionary Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo Scalabrinians say in the suit that Club Allure has ruined their peace with blinking neon lights and loud thumping music. The nuns say they have witnessed drunken fights and found condoms littering the area.

The suit, filed against the club and the village of Stone Park, states that the club violates a state law against operating adult entertainment within 1,000 feet of a school or place of worship. The club is also near houses, and three neighbors have joined the suit, The Tribune reports.
