Church Asks Judge for Permanent Injunction and Declaratory Relief

CANTON, NY – April 17, 2019 – Today, Christian Fellowship Center has filed a motion to convert Judge Lawrence E. Kahn’s preliminary injunction to a permanent injunction, which would fully secure the church’s rights to worship at 25 Court Street and prevent any action by the Village to complicate the case.

“We are in settlement discussions with representatives of the Village of Canton and are close to reaching a settlement,” said John Mauck, attorney for the church. “We hope it will come about at the May 20 city council meeting. Meanwhile in a motion filed today, we have asked Judge Lawrence E. Kahn to make his preliminary injunction permanent as a further protection for the Church’s right to worship at 25 Court Street. Happy Resurrection Day to all!”
