An illegal party at a swingers club that led to a reprimand for a Portland fire official now appears to have spelled the end for the venue, too.

Ron Jeremy's Club Sesso said Friday that it would close as of this weekend, citing legal troubles stemming from a June 2014 incident for which Assistant Fire Marshal Doug Jones was given a letter of reprimand.

The club had requested a permit for an anniversary party that would use recently renovated space in the building. When the permit — which club owner Paul Young said had previously been routinely approved — was denied, the club threatened to sue the city in response.

Jones, he later later admitted to city investigators, then told Young that no fire inspectors would be working if they held an unpermitted anniversary party.

But a fire inspector did show up and found the club didn't have a permit to use its upper floors, and an Oregon Liquor Control Commission inspector determined the club didn't have authorization to serve alcohol in that part of the building. (Young said he wasn't aware the temporary liquor license hadn't been approved.)

Smith said the club had already been in negotiations with the city over occupancy limits for the club.

The tensions with the city escalated after the June incident and the subsequent investigation, he said, and the violation led to an effort to revoke the club's liquor license. The cost to fight that sanction has been "significant," Young said.

He said Jones had misled "with a wink-and-nod conversation and leading me down a path to having that event."

"When you look at the nuances of the story ... you say, they're wanting to permanently revoke their license for this?" Young said.

Smith said he is "evaluating all options" and left the door open to reopening in the future.

A 4,000 square foot house in a quiet, gated Texas community is causing quite a stir. Neighbors say the single family home doubles as a swingers club on the weekends.

The Hills of Bear Creek is a gated subdivision outside Fort Worth, Texas. Last year, people who live in the area noticed that one house on Hidden Meadow Court was attracting dozens of cars at odd hours on the weekends.

As CBS News correspondent Vinita Nair reports, Carter's real neighbors say they have had enough.

They've filed a lawsuit alleging that homeowner Randy Carter has been running an illegal business out of his home -- a swinger's nightclub that he advertises on a website called "NaughtyNeighbors.com."

Chase Patterson lives next door with his wife and two young children.

"We've never counted the cars but I've seen at least 85 of them come in and out in a day," Patterson said

Carter was arrested in 2013 for illegal dumping on his property. Aerials taken this week show at least five beds lined up in one room. It was two months ago that the homeowner's association discovered the home featured on the Naughty Neighbors website.

On the webpage, the property boasts "private parties" with "light shows" and a "Pro DJ." There's even a "disco" complete with a "pole stage."

"It's pretty much a bar from what I understand," association president Velton Ellis said.

"I have been woken up at 2 and 3 in the morning from loud music," Ellis added. "My wife has felt the vibrations in the ground from the music."

Last week the homeowner's association filed a lawsuit alleging Carter is in violation of their rules by using his home as a business. It cites as evidence: "The defendant lists the cost per couple as $75" and "The operating times as Friday and Saturday from 8PM to 3AM." He also lists the maximum occupancy as 600 people.

"Hopefully the court will see in our favor he is definitely running a business and he will cease operations," Ellis said.

Patterson doesn't want to see a summer full of more parties.

"I think it concerns everyone, simply because of the safety of our families," Patterson said. "With multiple people coming in and out, it's our biggest concern. That is indeed why we live in a gated community."

Randy Carter and his attorney could not be reached for comment. According to Ellis, the homeowner's association gave Carter a warning before filing the lawsuit, which asks for an injunction as well as attorney's fees and unspecified damages. Carter has 20 days to respond.
