It’s possible that RLUIPA, the Religious Land Use & Institutionalized Persons Act, will not apply to your particular religious land use case. Attorney Daniel P. Dalton of Dalton & Tomich, PLC in Detroit explains the options available to leaders of churches, mosques, temples, synagogues and other institutions when RLUIPA does not apply.
Dalton has represented religious institutions in land use and zoning matters across the country. In this video, he discusses the various applications of RLUIPA in different circuits around the country and addresses state laws such as RFRA, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, as well as the First Amendment Free Exercise Clause, the Due Process Clause, the Equal Protection Clause and the Commerce Clause.
