A Dane County judge today ruled that the owner of a Mifflin Street building used as the Lion of Judah House of Rastafari is entitled to move forward with an eviction.
The founders of the church, Jesse Schworck and Dylan Bangert, had sought a motion to dismiss the eviction notice.
Schworck and Bangert face multiple charges following a drug raid May 29 at the church.
The building’s owner, Charanjeet Kaur, filed the eviction notice in June, saying the church was a public nuisance and that the tenants had not received the proper permit to act as a church, according to court records.
Bangert, 23, is charged with manufacturing THC with intent to deliver, possessing THC with intent to deliver, and maintaining a drug house.
Schworck, 39, who also was arrested in the raid last week faces five felonies and two misdemeanors, according to the criminal complaint filed Tuesday.
