MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) — Opponents of the Murfreesboro Mosque filed for an injunction yesterday in Rutherford County seeking to stop the Mosque’s construction.
Just last week Judge Robert Corlew declared void the 2010 county planning meeting at which the mosque’s construction plan was approved. Corlew opined in his written decision that county officials violated Tennessee’s Sunshine Laws by failing to give sufficient public notice for the meeting.
However, Corlew refused to halt the mosque’s ongoing construction.
MURFREESBORO, Tenn (WMOT) -- A national Islamic group says it’s alarmed by the reasoning cited by Rutherford County Chancellor Robert Corlew in his decision to void the Murfreesboro Mosque’s construction permit.
The Washington D.C. based Council on American-Islamic Relations sent a letter this week to the U.S. Department of Justice, asking for federal intervention in the case.
