Judge Tosses Suit Against NYC Islamic Center (CBS News Video)

A judge in New York has dismissed a lawsuit that tried to block an Islamic community center from opening near the World Trade Center site.

The New York Times reports that a lawsuit brought by a former firefighter seeking to block construction of the center was tossed out.

Timothy Brown had sought to reverse a decision by the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission denying landmark status to a 150-year-old building that developers want to demolish to make room for the Park 51 community center, which will include a mosque.
