Annual American Muslim Union brunch an opportunity for dialogue, bridge building
by Linda Moss
As part of an ongoing outreach program, a few weeks ago New Jersey State Attorney General John Hoffman met with local Muslim leaders and discussed a controversial court ruling that angered many members of that community.
A federal district court judge in February had dismissed a civil rights lawsuit brought by eight Muslims over the New York Police Department's secret surveillance of mosques and members of Islam in North Jersey, a case known as Hassan vs. City of New York.
Hoffman described some of the back and forth at the meeting on the court's ruling when he addressed the American Muslim Union's 17th Annual Brunch Sunday at Glenpointe Marriott in Teaneck.
