The future of an exotic dance club along I-41 is in jeopardy.
A state appeals court sided with Winnebago County in a ruling yesterday and the owners of Stars Cabaret have 30 days to file an appeal with the state Supreme Court. The strip club opened in the town of Neenah in 2006 and the appellate court determined that it has been operating illegally.
If there’s not a different court challenge, and the Supreme Court doesn’t overturn the ruling, Stars would have to close.
Winnebago County has a no-alcohol rule for strip clubs and a setback requirement from residential areas. The appellate court upheld those rules and said Stars knowingly broke them when it opened.
