When The Star of David Doesn't "Comply" with a Historic District

A Hasidic groups alleges discrimination over its plans to renovate a historic building in Litchfield, Connecticut:

This summer, a federal judge ruled that sufficient evidence of "discrimination against Jewish people" may exist, warranting a trial over the Borough of Litchfield's denial of a Hasidic group's application to build a synagogue on the west end of Litchfield Green. The ruling virtually guarantees a trial this fall on a controversy that has deeply divided the town.
