HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Neighbors with property near Ann Brown's dance studio in Huntsville want the court to shut down the business.

A lawsuit filed Thursday morning in Madison County circuit court claims Brown's studio violates rules of their neighborhood.

They said people attending the dance studios block driveways, making it difficult for emergency vehicles to get through.

Joseph Jefferson and Sarah Raynor cite "covenants and restrictions" of the Gwyn Homes Sites Addition. The plaintiffs go on to say the studio is a public nuisance and the defendants "intentionally and wrongfully disturbed the plaintiff's possession of his property".

Brown's daughter Lee Ann Brown Bender is also named as a defendant in this lawsuit. Back in May, Ann Brown pleaded not guilty to disorderly conduct charges.

She accused of threatening a nearby business owner. The business owner called to have cars towed from the parking lot. Those cars belonged to Brown's dance students.
