cross and sunset

Summary

An atheist group began fighting to remove the crosses, which honor fallen troopers, in 2007. A federal district court upheld the constitutionality of the crosses, but the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit later struck them down. The high court decided to let the decision stand.
