CHICAGO — A suburban strip club claimed a huge victory in court on Tuesday against a group of nuns and the city of Melrose Park.

A judge in Chicago dismissed five of the seven complaints brought against it and even called some of the plaintiff’s arguments “silly.”

In order for the case to move forward, the attorneys representing the nuns must be more specific as to why club Allure in Stone Park is a nuisance.

The club opened in 2011 and the nuns as well as Melrose Park filed a lawsuit in 2014.

Attorneys representing the nuns say they will re file their complaints.

A judge will take a look at the complaints this spring.
