Court Permits Church To Move Ahead on RLUIPA Claims

In Church of Our Savior v. City of Jacksonville,(MD FL, July 18, 2014), a Florida federal district court permitted a church to move ahead with its claims that denial of a conditional use permit to build a church on property in a residential area violates various provisions of RLUIPA, and that the city's Land Development Code violates RLUIPA's equal terms provision by allowing secular assemblies in residentially-zoned areas without a conditional use permit.
