A legal organization is continuing its fight with an adult entertainment operation in Illinois.
Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo own a convent, mostly used for elderly nuns, in Stone Park, a Chicago suburb known historically as a hub for the Mafia.
A strip club was constructed adjacent to their back door without the nuns being notified.
Tom Brejcha of the Thomas More Society says tax officials sent the legal notice about construction of the strip club to another address far down the street.
"Just a simple honest mistake, they claimed," Brejcha tells OneNewsNow.
The nuns found out too late to file an objection and Thomas More Society filed suit on behalf of the convent. But a judge has ruled it's too late.
Brejcha and Thomas More are now taking a different approach based on Illinois law that bars such establishments from within a thousand feet of a house of worship. The convent has three of them.
Thomas More Society has filed an amended complaint and promises an appeal if it loses.
