San Diego Legal News: Mount Soledad Cross ruled unconstitutional and new laws discussed


The enormous crucifix on government owned land that has been touted as a symbol of support for U.S. veterans has been deemed  unconstitutional. Government resources cannot legally be used to exclusively promote any specific religion, and the Mount Soledad cross is no exception.
