High court to hear strip club case

Posted June 13, 2008 3:26 p.m. EDT

— The state Supreme Court has agreed to hear a zoning case involving a proposed strip club in Raleigh.

"The Runway" has been proposed for a site on Mount Herman Church Road near Raleigh-Durham International Airport, but nearby residents have fought the club for years, saying it would harm the area.

After Raleigh officials granted the club a special permit to operate, opponents sued. The state Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the club, but the Supreme Court on Friday issued an order that it would hear from club opponents.
