Large Loss For Rogue Burgers In DuPont Circle

Pin It

It is an old-fashioned lawful throw down in Washington, D.C.’s Dupont Circle. Within the case of Rogue States Burgers, though, the burgers have lost out. Though some are labeling the lawsuit frivolous, a D.C. judge found it genuine. Rogue Burgers cannot beat doctors, apparently. Burger lovers aren’t at a loss, though, as Rogue States Burgers is already setting up a new area.

Sensing the Rogue Burger effortlessly

The argument of the Rogue States Burgers v. Steptoe and Johnson case are left on the table. The D.C. Superior Court has heard them all. Rogue States Burgers is a “nuisance” according to the large law firm. The office buildings in Steptoe and Johnson are right next to the Rogue States. The air intake system for starters and also the exhaust system for the other were also right next to one another. The resulting odor within the law offices brought on “headaches, nausea, dizziness, watery and itchy eyes and distraction.”

Exactly what is the reply from Rogue States Burger?

When the “Rogue Burger” lawsuit was at first filed, Rogue States Burgers took several steps to make an effort to reduce the odor from its exhaust system. New air scrubbers were installed, and employees were trained in reducing the fumes. Rogue States Burgers had been even going to re-route the exhaust system. The owner said it wasn’t allowed though.

Moving is exactly what Rogue States Burgers must do

A decision on the lawsuit over Rogue States Burgers’ smell came down on Tues afternoon – and it was swift and severe. More or less, Rogue States Burgers can have to shut down operations. This is since the judgment had been that fumes have to be stopped by 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday. It is not terrible for many who love the DuPont Circle burger joint. A lease for a new location had been already signed by the owner of Rogue States Burgers. He said that 1931 14th St. NW could be the brand new area of Rogue States Burgers.
