Senior Judge Paul Summers on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit aimed at stopping the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro from building a cemetery, the Daily News Journal reports. Judge Summers determined that the Rutherford County Board of Zoning Appeals made a proper and thorough decision in approving the ICM cemetery while also providing adequate public notice. His ruling follows a recent decision by the U.S. Supreme Court not to hear an appeal pertaining to a public-notice case from another group of plaintiffs who had sued to stop construction of the Mosque.
