title : Christian Cross Decals Removed from Texas Sheriff Patrol Cars to Settle Lawsuit
summary : After a Brewster County, Texas, sheriff added decals of Christian crosses to patrol vehicles, Freedom From Religion Foundation representatives filed a lawsuit against the sheriff department and county government in March. Those cross decals were taken off the fleet's vehicles this week to settle the case, along with covering the legal costs of the atheist group, whose representatives argued the religious symbols represented a government endorsement of Christianity in violation of the First Amendment.
