Tennessee Mosque Continues Construction While Ruling is Debated

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — 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 where building plans were approved.

Opponents of the mosque believe the ruling means construction of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro must stop. They have asked a judge to put construction on hold.

County Attorney Jim Cope says he believes construction can continue. He says opponents need to sue the mosque if they want to halt construction.

Rutherford County Chancellor Robert Corlew ruled Tuesday that there was not enough public notice of the meeting when the site plan for the mosque was approved in 2010.

The main building for worship is nearly complete.
