The high school with the Ten Commandments on its wall has removed the words. The mediation was ordered by U.S. District Judge Michael Urbanski in May.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of an unnamed student at Narrows High School who claimed that the display of the Ten Commandments in his school was unconstitutional because the display violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.
On May 31st, the Giles County School Board voted to replace the display with a framed copy of a page from a history textbook that makes reference to the Ten Commandments.
It is unknown what occurred during the confidential mediation. The ACLU attorney, Rebecca Glenberg, said that a proposed settlement agreement will be presented to the Judge, shortly.
