Hadsell Stormer Richardson & Renick along with the office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations have filed a joint complaint against the city of Lomita for denying the Islamic Center of South Bay’s application to build a new mosque.
The federal complaint, which was filed Wednesday in U.S. District in Los Angeles, alleges that Lomita is discriminating against and imposing substantial burdens on the Center in denying its petition for renovation. The suit claims that the reasons cited by the city are not based on legitimate concerns about increased traffic, among other things.
