Franklin Zemel, a partner in the Firm’s Religious Land Use Practice, is quoted in this article discussing regulations that come into play when faith communities rent or purchase properties.

"What you won’t see is a town code that blatantly says 'no religious assemblies are allowed to come into our town.' What you will see is a patchwork of ordinances that when combined, have that impact. We look for the warning signs within various ordinances to assess whether a city is violating RLUIPA," said Franklin.
