ABSTRACT
The article reports the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in the case "Chabad Lubavitch of Litchfield County Inc. v. Litchfield Historic District Commission." The court held that a Connecticut land use regulation is subject to the substantial burden provision of the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA) because it requires local commissions to accept or deny applications based on subjective standards with potential for discrimination.
