On November 17, 2004 Orlando Sentinel reported, "a court battle between a Christian school and its former landlord is escalating into a discrimination dispute as the school's owner said it was evicted because of religion. Lee Wasson, head of Kissimmee Christian Academy, said his school was kicked out of its Academy Drive building so an Islamic group could take over the space... Rab Masroor, a project manager for building owner Super Stop Petroleum, called the allegations 'absurd,' and said they are meant to distract people from the real issue, which is that Wasson owes Super Stop back rent and other money."
