Rocky Mountain Christian Church v Boulder County Cert Denied

The US Supreme Court denied certiorari January 10 in the case of Rocky Mountain Christian Church v Boulder County (reported here on May 25, 2010), a case decided by the United States Court Of Appeals  Tenth Circuit, No. 09-1188, May 17, 2010, involving claims under the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 (RLUIPA). The 10th Circuit decision upheld a jury verdict that denial of the church’s special use application to build an additional 130,200 SF in an area designated as agricultural lands of importance in Agricultural Districts violated the “equal terms” and “unreasonable limitations” provisions of RLUIPA.
