The federal government is going after the Rockland village of Airmont for the third time in 30 years.
In a lawsuit, the U.S. Attorney's Office is alleging the village has restricted Orthodox Jewish residents' ability to worship in private homes and prevent operation of a private religious school.
They claim they've done this by imposing land use and zoning provisions.
The village, which was incorporated in 1991, has lost two previous lawsuits.
Village officials have not returned requests for comment.
