Mosque construction ongoing, lawyers debate ruling

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - Construction is continuing on a new mosque outside of Murfreesboro as attorneys debate the import of a judge's ruling that voided approval of the site plan.

Rutherford County Chancellor Robert Corlew issued that ruling on Tuesday, opining that there was insufficient public notice of the meeting where the site plan was approved.

Plaintiffs' attorneys believe the ruling means construction on the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro must halt. On Wednesday, they filed an order that included an injunction to that effect. The order does not become final until signed by the judge.

On Thursday, County Attorney Jim Cope said he will contest the order because he does not believe it accurately reflects the judge's ruling. Cope said he believes plaintiffs need to sue the mosque if they want to halt construction.
