MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Tonight, it looks like the fight over the Murfreesboro Mosque is over, at least in Tennessee. Attorney for the opponents of the mosque, Joe Brandon, confirms the Tennessee Supreme Court denied their appeal. This action supports the Rutherford County Planning Commission's decision to approve that project several years ago. Opponents argued the Planning Commission didn't give enough notice before signing off on those plans. After plenty of back and forth in the courtroom, a federal judge stepped in last year, opening the Islamic Center. Brandon expects to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
