In an editorial, the Daily News Journal criticizes the plaintiffs of the ongoing Murfreesboro mosque lawsuit for wasting county taxpayer’s dollars. Rutherford County already has spent more than $340,000 for its defense in a lawsuit that continues to challenge the right of the Islamic faithful to build a mosque on Veals Road, the newspaper writes. The county won a state appeal that overturned the decision of Chancellor Robert Corlew that the county did not provide adequate public notice about consideration of the development plans for the mosque. Plaintiffs are now taking their appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
