(Pittsburg Tribune-Review) The Freedom From Religion Foundation, along with an anonymous parent and student on Thursday filed a lawsuit against the Connellsville Area School District seeking to have a Ten Commandments monument removed from Connellsville Junior High and to block its placement at a nearby church.

In a lawsuit, the plaintiffs claimed constitutional violations with the religious marker at the public school and possible further infringement on their rights if the monument is relocated near district property.

“To the plaintiffs, the monument excludes them and others … who do not follow the particular religion or god that the monument endorses,” attorney Marcus Schneider wrote in the suit.
