Steptoe and Johnson Law Firm Doesn't Like Burgers

D.C. Superior Court Judge John Mott ordered the restaurant, Rogue States on Connecticut Avenue near Dupont Circle, to shut down its grill this week. Neighboring law firm Steptoe & Johnson had sued the restaurant, saying the firm's employees suffered nausea, watery eyes and headaches from Rogue States' fumes.

The Rogue States responded with...........
DEAR FRIENDS,
ON OCTOBER 12, JUDGE JOHN MCADAM MOTT ORDERED US TO CLOSE OUR RESTAURANT. AFTER A LONG BATTLE TO STAY OPEN AND KEEP OUR BUSINESS ALIVE, JUDGE MOTT FORCED OUR HAND BY SIDING WITH OUR NEIGHBOR, STEPTOE AND JOHNSON, A POWERFUL LAW FIRM THAT CLAIMS THAT THE SMELL OF OUR BURGERS IS MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO KEEP UP THE LAWYERING BUSINESS. TODAY, STEPTOE AND JOHNSON AND THE JUDGE GOT THEIR WAY, BUT THAT IS NOT THE END OF IT; WE ARE STILL FIGHTING TO REOPEN OUR BUSINESS AND ONCE AGAIN BRING YOU THE BEST BURGERS IN DC.

CHEF RAYNOLD MENDIZABAL
