ADF will appeal decision to strike down roadside memorials to fallen Utah troopers

10th Circuit panel says crosses unconstitutional
despite U.S. Supreme Court ruling that says such crosses should stand

DENVER — Alliance Defense Fund attorneys are reviewing all options for appeal of a ruling issued Wednesday by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit that struck down roadside memorials to fallen Utah state troopers as unconstitutional.  The 10th Circuit reversed a district court ruling in American Atheists v. Davenport that upheld the memorial crosses.  ADF attorneys say the reversal is regrettable in light of a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in a separate case that indicates such memorials might be constitutional.

Case Name:  American Atheists v. Davenport
