  1. Nine years later... the Supreme Court decided the Eltern Kind Zentrum Schwabing can stay. Thanks for sticking with us throughout this ordeal. Merry Christmas! www.sueddeutsche.de/muenchen/muenchen-bundesgerichtshof-kinderlaerm-kita-1.4722164
  2. The Eltern-Kind-Zentrum Schwabing/Maxvorstadt is a non-profit organization providing early education, childcare, child raising support and health classes, language classes as well as integration opportunities to families in Munich.   In September we moved into a space that was formerly a 'Schlecker Laden' and are now being threatened with a law suit for 'Unterlassung.' The premise is that the unit we rented three months ago is only fit for a shop and not any other purpose according to the internal building code (Teilungserklärung). The law suit is being put forth by 6 neighbors in the building complex who are worried about having families with children in their midst. The city has all but approved our paperwork and sees no reason for us not to open our doors. It is strictly a dispute of the private housing code and the phrase 'Laden.' (The 'Laden' was also previously a 'Büro' -- also not a shop, so there is an existing precedent for a different use in the same space).   We're looking for a pro bono lawyer to take on the case. The groundwork has been done by a well known Munich lawyer who will be representing our landlord and can't, therefore, represent our organization as well. He's agreed to meet with our lawyer and walk through the case, we just need a representative to submit our response before December 17th. As a non-profit organization we can award receipts for the volunteer work which can be deducted from one's taxes (Sachspendebescheinigung).   Please respond quickly via PM with your suggestions. Thank you.   Kind regards, Lara Mosdal, Chair
