Club Madonna fights shutdown after police said teen girl danced nude

Club Madonna has gone to federal court to seek an injunction against Miami Beach for shutting it down.

City Manager Jimmy Morales pulled the club's business permits Friday after police said a 13-year old danced at the fully nude strip club at 1527 Washington Ave.

Three adults were arrested and charged with forcing the runaway teen into prostitution and later dancing at the club.

Club Madonna's owner and lawyer have said they have no proof that the girl performed there. The club filed for the injunction on Tuesday.
