ST. LOUIS – Neighbors of a biker bar and saloon on North Broadway in St. Louis allege that the bar is a public nuisance and are seeking damages.
Hibdon Hardwood Inc., Nancy Ellen Fox and Williams Thomas Hibdon filed a complaint on Oct. 2 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Shady Jacks Cafe on Broadway LLC, 1432 North Broadway LLC and the city of St. Louis alleging nuisance and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs own real estate near Shady Jack's. They allege patrons from the bar habitually congregate and engage in "persistently frequent unlawful motor vehicle acts that are dangerous to people in the neighborhood" and that the noise levels from the bar exceed the decibel limits set by the city. The plaintiffs also allege that Shady Jack's and 1432 North Broadway LLC placed concrete barriers in a public alley from Dickson Street that prevent vehicular traffic.
The plaintiffs allege that the defendants' operation of the bar causes it to constitute a private nuisance.
The plaintiffs seek judgment in their favor for money damages that they shall prove at trial and all other relief that is just. They are represented by Elkin L. Kistner, Joseph H. Neill and William E. Kistner of Bick & Kistner PC in St. Louis.
