Florida county sued over 10 Commandments monument

"Dixie County in Florida is being sued after allowing a local company to erect a Ten Commandments monument near the county courthouse. A spokesman for Liberty Counsel, the pro-family law firm representing the defendant, insists the county is within its rights, despite the American Civil Liberties Union legal challenge.

The black granite Ten Commandments monument, which weighs about six tons, was purchased by the Anderson Columbia highway construction company, donated to Dixie County, and placed near the courthouse in Cross City, Florida. In its lawsuit, the ACLU claims the monument is a violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and has asked that the monument be removed."
