The sellers of the shul attempted to move the case to commercial court, where they apparently believe they would have a better chance to prevail.
An administrative judge debited the request today, leaving the court to be heard by Justice Solomon on October 26th.
Per a request from the office of the Attorney General, the first hearing of the case has been pushed off to October 26th. The Temporary Restraining Order has been extended to that date as well.
In the meantime, the shul is functioning with full minyanim as posted on the schedule.

The next court hearing date was postponed to day to Oct. 19.
The Temporary Restraining Order against the developer and these who seek to demolish the shul was extended to the date above as well.
Like all good Yidden, we went to ask a Bais Din. And the answer was an unequivocal yes.
Not only that, but we we’re told that its a mitzvah to do so. Please see below for the psak in its entirely.
We have yet to see a psak from any dayan or beis din allowing the developers to raze the shul. In fact, we have in possession a recording of the seller stating that he did not ask before doing so.

The sellers have been fabricating lies that the previous Rav resigned, and therefore they went ahead and hired a new Rav.
Furthermore, after being called to the task for hiring a new Rav without a member vote, they denied the hiring and claimed that it was only an idea.
Please see the images below, where you can clearly see that they officially invited a new Rav. Additionally, look closely at the dates of the invitation and the resignation. As you can see, the date on the invitation precedes the date of the resignation.
Is it any wonder then, that the current Rav ‘resigned’? He was forced out against his own, and his congregants, will.
(For the sake of privacy, we have blacked out the name of the current Rav.)
The value of our shul building is incalculable. However, the property it lies on does have a value.
The sellers sold the property for only $3.1 million. As you can see below, the value of the shul property is between $4 million and $4.5 million.
