Jersey Journal reported last week that a settlement has been reached in Bayonne Muslims v. City of  Bayonne, a RLUIPA lawsuit filed in New Jersey federal district court last May. (See prior posting.) Under the settlement, construction of a community center and mosque will be approved by Bayonne’s Zoning Board after a revised application is filed and a public meeting is held.  The city will also pay $280,000 for plaintiff’s attorneys’ fees and an additional $120,000 in damages.
