MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The construction of an Islamic center in Murfreesboro is being challenged once again by plaintiffs.
The Daily News Journal reports that an attorney for the group opposed to the construction filed a motion earlier this week asking Chancellor Robert Corlew to look at whether the Rutherford County Planning Commission gave adequate public notice about a May 24 meeting where the mosque's site plan was approved.
The plaintiffs have contended that the notice was not adequate.
However, Islamic Center of Murfreesboro spokesman Saleh Sbenaty says even if the plaintiffs were successful in this case, it would only delay the project, not stop it.
Last month, ground was broken for the future home of the center, which has also been the target of vandalism.
The site is for a larger mosque than one located elsewhere in the city.
