Plaintiffs Want Access To Leaders' Emails About Mosque
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Plaintiffs suing Rutherford County for approving the new mosque in Murfreesboro said they want access to court-sealed emails of the county mayor and two planning officials.
Attorney Joe Brandon made the request in a motion filed in court on Wednesday. Seventeen plaintiffs have filed suit against the county. They claim leaders violated the Open Meetings Act by not giving proper notice for a meeting in which plans for the new Murfreesboro Islamic Center were approved.
Meanwhile, Murfreesboro Islamic Center leaders have obtained a building permit for the new mosque on Veals Road, and hope to have it finished within a year.
