MURFREESBORO, Tennessee— A judge refused Wednesday to stop construction of a proposed mosque in Tennessee that was opposed by some local residents who tried to argue that there was a conspiracy by Muslims to impose extremist law on the United States.

Opponents filed a lawsuit claiming that Rutherford County planning officials violated Tennessee's open meetings law when they approved the site plan for an Islamic Center in Murfreesboro, about 30 miles (50 kilometers) southeast of Nashville.

Rutherford County Chancellor Robert Corlew ruled after closing arguments that he could not find that the "county acted illegally, arbitrarily or capriciously" in approving the plan.
