Regulating Hate Through Zoning

Using the national headline story of the hate group that sought a permit to set up shop in an old Lutheran church in Murdock, Minnesota as a backdrop, we will cover the legal issues municipality must consider if they find themselves in this situation.  In a back-and-forth Q & A style format, we will discuss First Amendment implications, additional RLUIPA concerns if the hate group says it is a religious organization, preparing for potential litigation, and best land use practices generally to mitigate the issue without litigation.

The registration rate is $75 for DRI members and $150 for non-members.
