Lawsuit Filed Over Sale Of Shuttered School To Muslim Group

FARMINGTON (WWJ) – Some residents of Farmington have filed a lawsuit Friday over the sale of an elementary school to a Muslim group.

The residents claim that the Eagle Elementary school, which had been approved for demolition, was sold by the district without carrying out any market studies or getting competitive bids.

Those who support the sale accuse critics of bias against the buyer, the Islamic Association of America.

In June, the Farmington School Board stated it was moving ahead with plans to sell the shuttered elementary school to the Islamic Cultural Association of Franklin.
