CHICAGO (AP) — A convent in suburban Chicago plans to move forward with an effort to close a neighboring strip club even after a legal setback.

Cook County Circuit Judge Peter Flynn on Tuesday told the Missionary Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo to rework their lawsuit against Club Allure in Stone Park that alleges it violates prostitution regulations and is a nuisance.

But the judge also dismissed claims that the club violates zoning laws.

He asked the nuns’ lawyers, however, to provide specific, detailed examples of nuisances or lewd behavior.

Attorney Robert Itzkow, who is the former owner of the club, says it’s a legal business.
