City Settles With Muslim Group Over Zoning Denial

Journal Online reported this week that just days after settling with the Department of Justice (see prior posting), the city of  Des Plaines, Illinois entered a settlement agreement with the Society of American Bosnians and Herzegovinians.  The organization sued after it was denied a zoning change that would have allowed it to operate a mosque on property it wished to purchase.  Under the settlement, the city will pay the organization damages of $580,379.
