Judge Gives More Time for Mosque Construction

U.S. District Judge Kevin Sharp agreed Thursday to give the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro more time to complete construction and occupy its new building. Sharp extended a temporary restraining order until Aug. 15 after another federal judge last week ordered Rutherford County to restart the inspection process on the mosque. Nashville-based U.S. Attorney Jerry Martin said his office and Rutherford County asked the federal judge to provide more time to allow the ICM to complete the new mosque and obtain a certificate of occupancy after passing final inspections from the local government.
