Court Accepts Settlement In 10 Commandments In Schools Case

Today's Roanoke Times reports that a Virginia federal district court yesterday accepted the parties' settlement agreement and formally dismissed a lawsuit against the Giles County (VA) School Board that had been brought to challenge the schools' posting of Ten Commandment displays in the schools.  As previously reported, the Board had already agreed to replace the Ten Commandments text that was displayed at Narrows High School with a copy of a page from a history textbook captioned "Roots of Democracy."
