City hopes Supreme Court will hear ‘Ten Commandments’ case

News

BLOOMFIELD, N.M. (KRQE) – A New Mexico city working to keep its monument of the Ten Commandments will now ask the U.S. Supreme Court to hear its case.

According to the Farmington Daily Times, Bloomfield city councilors voted unanimously to take the case to the highest court.

The monument sits in front of City Hall and has for years, until a resident sued, saying it’s a violation of the separation of church and state. Both a district court and federal appeals court has now ruled against the city.

The Supreme Court is the city’s last chance to prove its case. They claim the monument is historical and on that merit should stay.
