03/20/2015: State court dismisses third party's collateral attack on RLUIPA Consent Order between the Dayalbagh Radhasoami Satsang Association of North America and Old Bridge, N.J.
The Superior Court of New Jersey, Middlesex County Law Division, granted S&G client Dayalbagh Radhoasoami Satsang Association of North America's (DRSANA) motion to dismiss a complaint challenging the federal settlement between DRSANA and the Township of Old Bridge Zoning Board of Adjustment. The settlement permits DRSANA to "build, occupy and operate on [their] property as described in the Settlement Agreement between DRSANA, the Township, and the Zoning Board," subject to site plan and subdivision approval. The operation of DRSANA's planned religious facility includes a place of worship, parsonage and ten dwelling units in five residential duplex homes. The settlement, which was incorporated into a federal consent order, was challenged by a third party opposed to such development. The order of dismissal is available here.
