Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. Prevails for the Development of a Ground Zero Mosque

By Adam Leitman Bailey


Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. was victorious in representing an Islamic community center who wanted to build a Mosque near Ground Zero.
The motion papers included, among others, defenses based on the fundamental rights guaranteed to all Americans by the United States Constitution including that, under the First and Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution, people are entitled to the free exercise of their religion. Adam Leitman Bailey, PC argued that intrinsic in that right, is the right to construct a house of worship and that our clients’ decision to build an Islamic Community Center in Lower Manhattan was consistent with the free exercise of their religion, and thus protected by the First Amendment.
