title : Six Organizations Join Legal Battle To Remove Ten Commandments' Monument In Pennsylvania High School
summary : Six organizations this month joined the multiyear legal battle to remove a Ten Commandments' monument from Valley Junior-Senior High School in New Kensington, Penn. A lawsuit originally was waged from an atheist parent who refused to send her daughter to school due to the monument's presence on the school grounds. The monument was donated to the school district by the Fraternal Order of Eagles in the 1950s, part of a nationwide movement in response to the 1956 release of the movie, “The Ten Commandments.” The lawsuit now will carry into 2016.
