The U.S. Supreme Court won’t hear an appeal from the Litchfield Historic District Commission, which was sued for religious discrimination when it rejected plans for the expansion of a Chabad synagogue in 2007.
From ABC News:
The justices on Monday left in place a lower court ruling that said Chabad Lubavitch of Northwest Connecticut could challenge the decision under a federal law barring government interference in religious exercise.
A federal judge originally threw out the case, but the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last year that the lawsuit could go forward.
