SEATTLE -- The Seattle City Attorney's Office has filed to close a strip club in Seattle's University District neighborhood.

The Seattle City Attorney's Office requested Thursday that the King County Superior Court close the "adult cabaret" club Jiggles because it violates building and zoning codes.

Jiggles opened in December, replacing the comedy club Giggles at 5220 Roosevelt Way N.E. It is directly across the street from a private elementary school.

Neighbors questioned whether an adult business could operate so close to a school. Concerns about parking, alcohol licenses, and city code were also brought up.

Thursday, the City Attorney's Office cited Jiggles violates codes because it is located within 800 feet of a school, child care center, community center and public park.
