Have no fear Rogue States fans! Try a hamburger from one of's Top 10 Burger Restaurants in Washington DC

by Jeff Hoyt 

It can be tough when your neighbors are lawyers. Just ask the owner of Rogue States, a Washington, DC, hamburger restaurant that was sued by the high-powered law firm located nearby. Yesterday, a judge ordered the restaurant to stop grilling hamburgers because of the “intense and noxious odor.”

According to the Washington Post, employees at the firm Steptoe & Johnson complained about itchy eyes, headaches and nausea, which they attributed to grilling fumes from the neighboring Dupont Circle eatery. Despite the restaurant’s attempts to upgrade its air-cleaning equipment, the firm filed suit and prevailed. The result could be the permanent closure of the restaurant, since it only serves burgers and fries.

  1. It’s an old-fashioned lawful throw down in Washington, D.C.’s Dupont Circle. In the case ofRogue States Burgers, though, the burgers have lost out. Some are calling the lawsuit crazy. Doctors, lawyers, and a judge have found the suit genuine, however. This decision does not mean that burgers are no longer available, though. A new area for Rogue States Burgers is already in the works.
