Houston lawyer Harry C. Arthur’s courthouse battle with Christ Church Cathedral and The Beacon, a homeless day center in downtown Houston, is over. Tuesday morning, 234th District Judge Reece Rondon of Houston signed an order granting Arthur’s motion for a nonsuit without prejudice in the suit filed by Arthur and a building he owns, The Marine Building.

The plaintiffs filed the suit in November 2009 seeking a court order to shut down The Beacon, which is operated by the Cathedral Health & Outreach Ministries (CHOM), on the ground it is a “private nuisance.” The Marine Building is located near The Beacon.
