you should be able to execute that LINQ statement by using a temp variable:
var st = Common.Enums.Status.Active.ToString();
|var query = from contact in scope.Extent<Contact>()
| where contact.Status.Equals(st)
| select new
In general, constant calculations should be moved outside the LINQ expression.
