State Supreme Court judge Mark Partnow removed another roadblock facing developers of a Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, mosque by denying a preliminary injunction filed by opponents of the project.
The group Bay People, representing plaintiffs in the case, said they would continue to fight the construction of the mosque. The group argued that the mosque would bring excessive traffic and noise to the area. Supporters have noted that other religious institutions populate the neighborhood and that most worshipers would walk to the mosque.
The attorney for the mosque developer, Allowey Ahmed, did not respond to a request for comment.
