Senior Judge Paul Summers ruled today that Islamic Center of Murfreesboro (ICM) attorney John Green can continue to represent the congregation in a lawsuit about the ICM cemetery. Plaintiffs’ attorney Duncan Cates Cave had objected to Green being involved because the ICM attorney had spoken like a witness before the Rutherford County Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) during a public hearing when the BZA approved the cemetery in a 3-2 vote Jan. 8. The judge  said he will return to court on June 19 to rule on whether to dismiss the case or schedule a trial that would start about a month later, the Daily News Journal reports.
