An after-hours club is suing Toronto Police for $23 million for what it considers an eight-year campaign of intimidation and abuse of power.


The Comfort Zone’s lawsuit alleges officers targeted the Spadina Ave. club because they wanted to close it down permanently after linking it to a drug overdose death.


The lawsuit seeks $20 million in damages, $2 million in punitive and aggravated damages and another $1 million in exemplary damages.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.

The suit alleges Toronto Police repeatedly attended the club, harassed patrons and staff and encouraged them not to attend”

On more than 50 occasions, officers entered the club, searched it and questioned patrons while “flashlights were shone in their faces and they were generally intimidated,” the lawsuit alleges.
