ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mi. — A Michigan couple is suing the creators of Pokemon Go for turning their neighborhood into a “nightmare.”

Scott and Jayme Dodich of St. Clair Shores filed a class action lawsuit, claiming Pokemon Go developers have made millions of dollars while ruining the quality of life for many Americans.

They say Pokestops and gyms, or GPS coordinates for Pokemon users looking for virtual creatures, are being placed on or near private property without the permission of owners.

In the Dodich’s case, the couple lives across the street from Wahby Park, a Pokemon hotspot that has a Poke gym and at least seven stops that bring in hundreds of players on any given day.
