Kendall Coffey was mention on ABC News on December 11, 2013. Kendall Coffey is representing the City of Sunny Isles, Florida in the case against the city over a historical preservation site. An Orthodox Jewish temple applied to make renovations in a building, and the city denied. The suit against the city claims religious discrimination.

From ABC News: Former Miami U.S. Attorney Kendall Coffey, who represents Sunny Isles Beach and its mayor, said rather than religious freedom, the major concern of B’nai Zion is how the historic designation affects the property’s value. Coffey noted that Edelcup and several other city officials involved in the decision are also Jewish.

“They are alleging anti-Jewish discrimination on the part of public officials, the vast majority of whom are Jewish,” Coffey said. “It’s far-fetched, although the plaintiff (B’nai Zion) has an obvious financial motive.”
