Ten Commandments lawsuit trial begins

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Opening statements started Monday in the lawsuit over the Ten Commandments Monument on display on the Bloomfield City Hall lawn.

The ACLU filed a federal lawsuit more than two years ago on behalf of two Bloomfield residents.

It alleges the monument is a government endorsement of religion and violates the First Amendment.

The city is represented by an Arizona group that advocates for religious liberties.
