After-hours teen club to close following FOX 4 investigation

An after-hours teen club inside of a strip club will close immediately -- that's the agreement reached between the City of Dallas and the club owner.

FOX 4 first exposed the problems at Eternal Eden, which is inside the Jaguars strip club, and after nine hours of mediation, the two sides have agreed that the party is over.

The after-hours club opened at 3 a.m. on Sunday mornings and catered to the younger crowd.

The city called it a common nuisance that promoted an environment where drugs were sold and openly used.

FOX 4 started investigating Eternal Eden last May, after 19-year-old Brittnay Nemeth died of an overdose after a night of partying there.

Police also confirmed another death with ties to the club.

In December, the U.S. Attorney's Office indicted 15 people on federal drug charges for dealing cocaine, meth and heroin. The city followed up by filing a temporary injunction.

Both sides met in mediation and agreed that in addition to the after-hours club closing, Jaguars will install security cameras that view the parking lot and inside the club, put up 13 signs stating the property is under video surveillance and require all Jaguars employees to take quarterly drug tests.

FOX 4's investigation showed Brittney Nemeth was placed in a cab and drove 45 miles to White Settlement when Parkland Hospital was just a few miles away.

According to the agreement, employees are required to call 911 if they suspect a drug overdose.

We called the club's attorney but he did not return our call.

A trial date has been set for May.

The club's attorney says there is a new owner and he has filed a lawsuit in federal court, saying the club's First Amendment rights are being violated. 

FOX 4 will keep you posted.
