A convent of Illinois nuns has filed a lawsuit to shut down a Chicago-area strip club in their own backyard, alleging there is a lot more than lap dances going on behind closed doors.
A hearing for the Stone Park strip club’s motion to dismiss the case will be heard Tuesday. The Missionary Sisters of St. Charles have filed a suit against “Get It Entertainment,” the company operating the 20,000-square-foot “Club Allure.”
The lawsuit alleges the club violates state law by being within 1,000 feet of the convent and that the strippers actually engage in prostitution. The club is on the adjacent property just behind the back fence of the convent.
The lawsuit, filed with the help of the Christian legal group The Thomas More Society, alleges that the club’s policy of allowing “high friction rubbing” qualifies as prostitution under Illinois law.
