On November 10, 2004 Daily Southtown reported, "a federal judge has pushed back the planned trial date for the civil rights lawsuit filed against Palos Heights by a Muslim group that wanted to build a mosque in the city four years ago. U.S. District Judge James Zagel vacated the Nov. 15 trial date for the $6.2 million lawsuit. A new date has not been set, but attorney Richard T. Ryan, who represents the city, said Tuesday he does not expect the case the go to trial until next year."
