River of Life Kingdom Ministries v. Village of Hazel Crest, 08-2819

In plaintiff-church's suit against defendant-village under the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act to allow it to relocate to the business district, district court's denial of plaintiff's motion for preliminary injunction to allow it to relocate to the property in the interim is affirmed as the church has only a slim chance of success on the merits and any irreparable harm it may suffer does not significantly outweigh the potential harm to the village.
