This month the ABA published what I believe to be the first-ever treatise on RLUIPA. Here is the blurb for Litigating Religious Land Use Cases:
This book discusses how to litigate such a religious land use case on behalf of a religious entity pursuant to the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (“RLUIPA”) and the First Amendment. While the First Amendment dates to the founding days of the United States, RLUIPA is a much more recent federal law that can serve as an effective tool in protecting the property interests of religious organizations.
