Senior Judge Paul Summers has been appointed to hear a case over a county-approved cemetery at the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, the Murfreesboro Post reports. After all judges in Rutherford County recused themselves, the Administrative Office of the Courts appointed Summers to preside over the matter between a group of residents and the Rutherford County Board of Zoning Appeals. Chancellor Robert Corlew, who heard previous matters regarding the mosque, recused himself in late March after an attorney for the mosque asked him step down.
