D.C. is suing a nonprofit for allegedly misusing money from the District’s HIV/AIDS program.

The lawsuit filed by D.C. Attorney General Irvin Nathan alleges Miracle Hands, Inc., and its executive director, Cornell Jones, diverted almost $330,000 in grant money to renovations at two warehouses.

One of the warehouses was to be converted into a job-training facility for people with HIV or AIDS. Instead, it opened in 2010 as the Stadium Club, a “premier gentleman’s club” that offers “five-star dining.”

The lawsuit seeks damages and penalties of more than $1 million.
