RLUIPA - What Happens When I Report?

After you contact DOJ, we will talk to you about your experience.  After that, we may do one or more of the following:

  • Investigate the state, county, or municipality related to your complaint;
  • Decide whether to file a lawsuit;
  • Inform the state, county, or municipality of RLUIPA’s application and legal protections;
  • Gather evidence;
  • Attempt to negotiate and settle the lawsuit;
  • Argue the case at trial; or
  • Encourage you to consult with a private attorney about what rights you may have under RLUIPA or other federal, state, or local laws.

We will keep you updated on where we are in the process.
