CONSENT DECREE RESOLVES SUIT OVER NEW YORK CHURCH'S EFFORTS TO LOCATE IN COMMERCIAL DISTRICT | LAW OF THE LAND

| No Comments
Patricia Salkin--Law of the Land:

A federal court in New York entered a consent decree on November 23 resolving allegations by the United States that the City of Port Jervis, New York, violated a church's rights under RLUIPA when it changed its zoning code to ban places of worship in two zoning districts where they were previously allowed as of right.  The order resolves a lawsuit brought by the United States in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York after the Goodwill Evangelical Presbyterian Church entered into a contract to purchase property within one of those zones to use as a church.
