RLUIPA Lawsuit Challenges Denial of Permit To Christian School

According to the Livingston (MI) Daily, on Friday Livingston Christian Schools filed a RLUIPA lawsuit in federal district court against Genoa County, Michigan over Genoa Township's denial to it of a special use permit that would have allowed it to relocate to the Brighton Church of the Nazarene facilities.  In turn, Light of the World Academy planned to move into the facility in Pickney that Livingston Christian would vacate. The township board voted 4-3 to deny the permit that had been recommended by the planning commission because of traffic concerns.
