Court Refuses To Allow Chabad To File Amended RLUIPA Complaint

In Friends of Lubavitch v. Baltimore County, Maryland,(D MD, June 3, 2021), a Maryland federal district court found no RLUIPA or other violations in denying a motion to file an amended complaint and a motion for reconsideration.  At issue was an earlier decision that dismissed a suit in which a Chabad House serving students at Towson University and Goucher College challenged a state court order requiring it to raze the expansion of its building which was constructed in violation of zoning rules and a deed restriction.
