US Supreme Court Rules That a Cross Can Stand on Public Land

US Supreme Court Rules That a Cross Can Stand on Public Land At issue in the ruling is a nearly 100 year-old, 40-foot World War I memorial cross on public land in Maryland.

In the 7-2 decision, the Court ruled in part that because the cross "has stood for so many years," it is "fully consistent" with the aim of "the Religion Clause of the Constitution." The ruling could imply that other crosses and symbols that are already erected, such as the Ten Commandments, would remain if challenged.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote the dissent.
