Bayonne to pay $400,000, allow mosque construction in settlement
from Reuters via Business Insider
The city of Bayonne has agreed to a $400,000 settlement with a local Muslim group that will allow a planned mosque to proceed, ending a lawsuit that accused officials of illegally rejecting the zoning application. The U.S. Department of Justice last year said it had opened an investigation into the case, and the settlement does not affect that probe. A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's office in New Jersey, which launched the investigation, declined to comment on its status.
