Supreme Court Denies Review In Murfreesboro Mosque Case

The U.S. Supreme Court today denied certiorari in Fisher v. Rutherford County Regional Planning Commission, (Docket No. 13-1214, cert. denied, 6/2/2014). (Order List).  In the case, a Tennessee Court of Appeals reversed a trial court's holding that Rutherford County had given inadequate public notice of a meeting which approved the site plan for the controversial Murfreesboro mosque. (See prior posting.) The Tennessee Supreme Court denied review. The first portion of the planned Islamic center was completed and occupied in August 2012. Today's Tennessean has more details.
