MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) -- A Rutherford County judge will hear arguments in a request to dismiss much of the complaint against the county for its approval of plans for a new mosque.
Attorney Joe Brandon Jr. has argued in court that all construction at the site should be stopped because proper notice was not given for the meeting where the site plan was approved.
But he also has made several other claims, accusing members of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro of supporting terrorism and being a threat to neighbors.
The county wants the judge to dismiss the claims not related to the meeting notice.
Meanwhile, Brandon is seeking to amend his complaint and add 14 additional plaintiffs to the original three.
Both issues will be heard in Rutherford County Chancery Court on Wednesday.
