11th Circuit Hears Arguments In Challenge To Cross In City Park

On Wednesday, the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments in  Kondrat'yev v. City of Pensacola, Florida.  (Audio of full oral arguments).  In the case, a reluctant Florida federal district court judge held that a 34-foot concrete Latin Cross that has stood in a city park for decades violates the Establishment Clause. (See prior posting.)  Pensacola News Journal reports on the oral arguments.
