New Jersey’s state Supreme Court says the town of Sayreville was within its rights to impose restrictions on a strip club because there are similar businesses in nearby Staten Island, N.Y.

Thursday’s ruling could be the final word in Sayreville’s long legal battle with Club 35.

The town said that such businesses could not be within 1,000 feet of homes, parks or houses of worship.

The state’s high court has previously said that such restrictions are allowable — but only if there are other places where that type of expression is available.

Owners of Club 35 said there were no other businesses similar businesses in the area.

But Sayreville said there are strip clubs on Staten Island. In a 5-1 ruling, the court said that reasoning was sound.
