A federal judge ordered a Tennessee county on Wednesday to move ahead with opening a Muslim congregation’s newly built mosque after a two-year fight from opponents.
Construction is continuing on a mosque as attorneys debate a judge's ruling that said local officials did not give the public enough notice about a meeting during which building plans were approved.
A judge in Tennessee ruled Tuesday that the public wasn't properly notified about a meeting at which local officials approved the plan for a proposed mosque, meaning construction of the disputed project will be stopped.
Authorities are investigating a fire that damaged at least one construction vehicle at a Tennessee site where a new mosque is being built.
Mosques aren't roiling just New York. Plans to build a Muslim worship center in Murfreesboro, Tenn., have taken a front seat in two major political races that Tennessee voters will decide Thursday.
