Court OKs school Commandments ban

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A state appeals court upheld a school district's refusal
Tuesday to display the Ten Commandments on a ballfield fence. The case
started in 1995 when Downey High School sought ads to pay for new uniforms.
Edward DiLoreto, chief executive of a local engineering firm, paid $400 and
had a sign made up with the Ten Commandments under a caption inviting
readers to "meditate on these principles to live by." The school refused to
display the sign. After obtaining an opinion from then-Attorney General Dan
Lungren that the posting would be legal, the Downey Unified School District
instead removed all ads from the fence in 1996 and ended the fund-raiser.
