ACLU defeated; Mojave cross stays

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court has said a federal court went too far in ordering the removal of a congressionally endorsed war memorial cross from its longtime home in California.

The justices said Wednesday that federal judges in California did not take sufficient notice of the government's decision to transfer the land in a remote area of California to private ownership to eliminate any constitutional concern about a religious symbol on public land.
