Jackley, Others Support Veteran's Memorial Cross

Jackley, Others Support Veteran's Memorial Cross
Marty Jackley

PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley has joined his counterparts in 18 other states in asking the U.S. Supreme Court to rule that the use of a cross to memorialize veterans does not violate the First Amendment.

A veterans group has asked the Supreme Court to overrule an order to remove a war memorial cross from a San Diego mountaintop after it was found to violate the unconstitutional separation of church and state.

Jackley says in a statement that he and the other attorneys general have filed a "friend of the court" brief asking that justices "recognize and respect the dedication, sacrifice, and freedoms earned by our veterans."

The attorneys general also are asking the Supreme Court to provide a clearer First Amendment test for lower federal courts.
