Where's the Scooby Gang when you need them?

Via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel (from the AP, of course):


The owners of a Japanese restaurant who claim their newly renovated building is haunted are being sued by their landlord for refusing to move in.

An offer to hold an exorcism was refused, according to the 2.6 million dollar lawsuit filed by the owners of the Church Street Station entertainment complex last month in Orange County Circuit Court.

The lawsuit also asks a judge to decide whether the building is haunted and, if so, whether the ghosts would interfere with the restaurant's business.

Christopher and Yoko Chung had planned to move their Amura Japanese Restaurant into the building in October 2004, but backed out of the lease.

The Chungs' attorney says subcontractors gave several documented reports of having seen ghosts or apparitions in the restaurant at night. The attorney also says Christopher Chung's religious beliefs require him to "avoid encountering or having any association with spirits or demons."


Did the ghosts ask him to play poker or something? Jinkies.

Update:

By the way, one of my favorite pubs in Chicago, The Red Lion, does a brisk business despite allegedly being haunted. The menu proudly boasts of this fact, proclaiming that you may see unexplained apparitions, hear strange noises, and, my personal favorite, detect "psychic smells."
I've been in the upstairs of the Red Lion alone a couple of times to use the bathroom (when the line gets too long downstairs they'll let you go into the upstairs even if it's closed for the night), and while there were smells, I'm fairly certain that they were not psychic in nature.
