Appeals court reverses decision on Fargo monument
FARGO (AP) -- A lawsuit opposing a Ten Commandments monument on Fargo city property can move forward, the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Friday in reversing a decision by a federal judge.
A three-judge panel ruled that the Red River Freethinkers should be allowed to proceed with its action against the city and sent the lawsuit back to district court. The ruling extends a debate that began in 2002 when the group filed its first suit in federal court.
