Cordoba House faces new trouble

Remember the Ground Zero Mosque? It faded from the headlines when it seemed that all the obstacles to the project were exhausted, but another legal battle has arisen. The mosque developer has a lease on the neighboring property, and its owner, Con Ed, is demanding $1.7 million in back rent.

I hope the mosque developers lose, because what they are trying to do is extraordinarily unseemly. But more than that, I hope that the legal process is carried out without political interference. The terms of the lease (which I have not seen reported anywhere) should govern the dispute.
