An attorney for the property owner said they're not going to fight the city's efforts to shut it down because the business known as The Social Club is already gone.
Last month, we told you how Metro had filed a complaint trying to close the TSC. The owner had gotten a permit to operate it as a church, but when city inspectors visited the club, they found people openly engaging in sexual acts.
Previously, the TSC had operated as a swinger's club downtown and when it announced plans to move to the Madison office park, both the Metro council and state legislature quickly passed laws directly aimed at preventing that from happening. 
In court Monday, the club's attorney said the TSC has since moved, though he did not say where. He also indicated that the owner now plans to use the property as a homeless shelter for veterans though it does not have a permit to do that either.
