Summary
A lawsuit sought to uproot a Ten Commandments monument on the Allegany County courthouse grounds that is nearly identical to one the U.S. Supreme Court upheld in 2005. A resident of a neighboring county who owns property in Allegany County filed the lawsuit to have the monument removed because he claimed “he is offended” by it.
