  • UNCONSTITUTIONAL: A city hall Ten Commandments monument.
The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday upheld a lower court ruling that a Ten Commandments monument built with private donations and erected outside the Bloomfield, N.M. City Hall was a constitutional violation.

Sound familiar, Sen. Rapert?

The appellate court for the 10th Circuit ruled Wednesday that the monument would be seen by an objective observer as a religious endorsement by Bloomfield's government.
