Airmont vs the Jews?

In a replay of a 1990s civil rights court fight, federal prosecutors have again accused Airmont officials of discriminating against Orthodox Jews. The civil rights lawsuit filed against the village accuses Airmont of establishing zoning laws that prohibit all religious boarding houses within its borders... The current lawsuit centers on Congregation Mischknois Lavier Yakov's plans for a religious school and boarding facilities for upward of 200 students, teachers and administrators on Hillside Avenue.
