CASERedemption Community Church v. City of Laurel

Client Story


Share this page
Summary
Laurel, Maryland, officials adopted a series of unconstitutional zoning code changes to stop Redemption Community Church from operating in the city’s downtown area. The law forces houses of worship to submit to an expensive, time-consuming, and uncertain special exception process that is not imposed on nonreligious organizations.
