Win for the home team

The U.S. Supreme Court announced June 25 it will not hear an appeal of a 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruling that the 43-foot-tall Mount Soledad cross on public property in La Jolla, Calif., is unconstitutional. It’s a great legal victory for cross challenger Steve Trunk, a longtime FFRF Board Member and Life Member (and FFRF’s third Atheist in Foxhole awardee). The suit was first filed in 1989 by the late Philip Paulson. Trunk joined the suit while Paulson was dying of cancer.
