Lawyers for a Seattle church suing to shut down a pot store next door will be back in court on Friday.

The Mount Calvary Church in the Central District is resisting the location of Uncle Ike’s Pot Shop.

The church’s lawsuit claims the pot shop lied about how close it would be to a park and a teen recreation center.

The church says it’s trying to keep marijuana away from children.

The lawsuit says Uncle Ike’s lied on the business application about not being near places where youngsters hang out.

The church also said the City of Seattle and State Liquor Control Board never gave them proper notice to fight the pot shop’s application.

KIRO 7 tried to get a comment from the owner of Uncle Ike’s on the alleged lie on their application and to talk about the lawsuit, but the owner did not want to comment.

 The church said it will have a large group at the downtown courthouse Friday morning.
