The Cross Will Stand

Salazar v. Buono (Mojave Desert cross case):

Today, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that the cross serving as a WWI Memorial in the Mojave Desert can stand! In 1934, the VFW first erected a cross in the Mojave Desert to honor WWI Veterans.  Challenges to the cross began in 1999 and in 2002, Congress passed legislation designating the cross as a national memorial and stating that no federal funds may be used to remove the cross.  Later, Congress passed legislation that contained a land transfer to the VFW, but the 9th Circuit held the transfer to be invalid and ordered the cross to be covered.
