MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – An attorney for plaintiffs opposed to construction of a new mosque Murfreesboro mosque hammered away again at possible connections between a few members of the mosque and terrorists groups.

At a Thursday hearing in Rutherford County Chancery Court, Joe Brandon, Jr. brought in a computer specialist.

Tim Cummings had been hired by plaintiffs to search the Internet for content connected to the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.

County attorney Jim Cope strenuously objected several times, calling the evidence "hearsay," but Chancellor Robert Corlew allowed the presentation.

Later on, Cummings said he had no way of knowing the "truthfulness" of what he presented the court.

The plaintiffs are suing the county, claiming proper notice wasn't given for a meeting at which a site plan for the mosque was approved, but much of the testimony has centered on Islam and its ties to terrorism.

Thursday marked the fifth day of testimony over three weeks in the hearing.
