Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer. Give me just a moment to review your question.
This is a criminal law question so I am requesting that it be transferred to that section and will opt out so that someone from criminal law can take a look at it.
Thank you for your question. Be sure to go ahead and bookmark www.nateanswers.com for future questions.For what reason have the police stated you must shut down the club? And, what kind of club is it?
They said that we cannot legally operate after 3am... when I informed them we are a private member only club, they said that did not mean anything, then they stated the music was too loud, even though the music cannot be heard outside our clubhouse. this is a motorcycle club.
I am unsure that I am familiar enough with Missouri private club law to truly assist you. I am going to opt out so perhaps a professional with more experience can help with your questions.Someone should be with you momentarily.Nate
