Civil Practice: Public Nuisance-Injunction

Where appellants challenged a permanent injunction prohibiting them from operating a commercial swimming facility on their property until certain safety conditions were met, the trial court did not err in concluding that appellants’ operation of the facility was a public nuisance, even though no Missouri case has addressed a situation in which a private property owner invited people to the alleged nuisance, because a public nuisance may be found in a place that the public is likely to congregate, and the judgment is affirmed because substantial evidence supported the trial court’s injunction.

Judgment is affirmed.
