Supreme Court Says Mojave Cross Can Stand

Hosted by

Since 1934, a cross honoring World War I soldiers has stood on federally owned land in California's Mojave Desert. For years it's been tied up in litigation over the issue of separating church and state. A federal court ruled that the National Park Service should remove the cross because it amounted to a government endorsement of religion. Today the US Supreme Court, in a 5-to-4 split decision, said that's going too far. David Savage covers the court for the Los Angeles Times.
