Mount Soledad Cross Sold to Private Organization

The Mount Soledad cross, a war memorial atop a hill near San Diego, has finally been sold to a private group in a move that should end the decades-long court battle over its legality.  The Mount Soledad Memorial Association, which is the same group that has maintained the cross for decades, paid $1.4M for the property. 

The cross had been ruled unconstitutional several times in a long-running judicial history that momentarily included an appearance at the Supreme Court.  The authority to transfer the property was granted in last year’s NDAA.

Also at the Religion Clause.
