Judge hears land arguments
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Construction moved forward at the site of the new St. Joseph’s High School on Wednesday, but a judge has the possibility of putting a wrench in the plans. A U.S. District Court Judge heard oral arguments on Wednesday morning over the ‘Family Dollar’ piece of land that will serve as the school’s athletic complex. The American Civil Liberties Union is suing the city over the transfer of land to the Catholic school.
The city is giving the land to the school, but ACLU said this violates the separation of church and state.
