NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- In a much anticipated case, the Tennessee Supreme Court has denied an appeal by opponents of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro and affirmed an appellate ruling in favor of the Rutherford County Planning Commission.

“This action signifies the end of the appeal,” said Michael W. Catalano, the clerk for the Tennessee Appellate Court Clerk’s Office.

Catalano, who oversees the dockets and manages cases pending before the Supreme Court and other state circuits, sent a letter Thursday on behalf of the justices informing all those involved in the lawsuit that the application for appeal has denied – the case can finally be put to rest following more than three years of legal battles.

Atty. Brandon, had he been ethical, would have told his trouble-making clients that this case had not one legal leg upon which to stand and was, therefore, unwinnable. Obviously, he's not very ethical. He must have only been involved for the notoriety.

God CLEARLY does not like "ugly" and was not in support of their efforts against the Muslims, though neither the Islamic Center nor any Muslim was named as a defendant. Had they been named, they could have defended themselves in court.

Good job, Atty. Brandon!! You're racking up a long string of losses involving this case!
