The Harris county Attorney says it’s the power of the civil lawsuit.
It was earlier this year when County Attorney Vince Ryan filed nuisance lawsuits against several strip clubs in Harris County including the very popular Babe’s on FM 1960.
Well, after that suit was filed Babe’s has shut down its north Houston location.
Melissa Spinks, an assistant County Attorney, says she attributes the closure to the lawsuit.
Spinks says when law enforcement officers raid adult nightclubs they just reopen.
But she says when you file a civil lawsuit it goes deep in the pockets of the business and land owner.
Spinks says that’s why some businesses just choose to shut down rather than spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in a court battle.
I attempted to reach the management at Babe’s but all I got was a busy signal at the clubs listed phone number.
