Accoriding to this story it seems someone planning on moving his restaurant into a renovated building has backed out of the lease because of reports the building is haunted, prompting the building owners to sue:

quote:
The owners of Amura Japanese Restaurant say they don't want to move into a renovated building at Church Street Station because it's haunted, according to a lawsuit filed by the building's landlord.

"I asked them if these were good ghosts or bad ghosts, and if they were good ghosts why it was a problem," said David Simmons, a lawyer representing the owners of Church Street Station

...Church Street Station's owners offered to bring in someone to perform an exorcism but were rebuffed, according to the $2.6 million lawsuit.



The restaurateur's lawyer chimes in:

quote:
"Apparently, these types of sightings are well-known to some of your employees but were not made known to Mr. Chung. . . . As a Jehovah's Witness, Mr. Chung has deeply held beliefs regarding spirits and demons. These beliefs require him to avoid encountering or having any association with spirits or demons."



Well at least we'll finally get a definitive decision on whether ghosts exist:

quote:
In addition to seeking $2.6 million to cover 10 years of rent and damages, the owners' lawsuit asks a judge to decide whether there are ghosts in the building -- and if there are, whether they would meddle in the operation of the Chungs' sushi restaurant.



Hey Storm, this is in your neck of the woods. Have you checked this place out?



The foundation of morality is to . . . give up pretending to believe that for which there is no evidence, and repeating unintelligible propositions about things beyond the possibliities of knowledge.
