A judge has tossed out a lawsuit by a former New York City firefighter trying to stop the building of an Islamic community center near the World Trade Center.
The New York Times reports that State Supreme Court Justice Paul G. Feinman ruled Friday that Timothy Brown has no special legal standing to bring the suit.
Brown filed the suit after the Landmarks Preservation Commission denied landmark status to the building that would be torn down to make way for the center. A former Burlington Coat Factory store, it was damaged in the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
Critics have assailed the project as an insult to victims.
A lawyer for developer Sharif el-Gamal calls the decision "a victory for America."
