Judge Catherine Palermo has ruled in favor of property owners and will allow the eviction of the Ichibon Restaurant and nightclub from a Court Street building owned by land baron Brian Murray who owns numerous buildings around town.
The ruling comes just after a weekend where three were arrested at the club and a decorative tree was destroyed allegedly by unruly patrons.
The club began as Asian Fusion, a high end Asian restaurant. The current owner had trouble making it as a restaurant and resorted to functioning as a nightclub on Fridays and Saturdays drawing the attention of cops and the landlord with a variety of problems.
Mr. Murray sought eviction on the grounds the use violated the lease.
