California Mosque Sues Over Zoning Denial

Annenberg TV News yesterday reported that in Los Angeles, California, the Council on Islamic American relations has filed a lawsuit challenging the city of Lomita's refusal to grant a permit for a renovation project for the South Bay Islamic Center. The city says the project would violate building codes, require too many zoning changes and would not fit in well with the neighborhood. Plaintiffs charge religious discrimination.
