This book provides a general background of RLUIPA (Religious Land Use and Institionalized Persons Act) so that the reader understands the context in which RLUIPA was passed by Congress in 2000, as well as a very practical discussion about RLUIPA litigation from the perspective of the church and the perspective of the community. The book offers information and advice on initiating a RLUIPA lawsuit, as well as defending against a RLUIPA lawsuit.
