City Sued Over Removal of Atheist Billboard

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Freedom From Religion Foundation is suing
Rancho Cucamonga, California, for the city's alleged role in
removing the atheist group's "Imagine No Religion" billboard.

The billboard company took the sign down after the city asked if there was a way to get it removed. Rancho Cucamonga's redevelopment
director says the city had received 90 complaints about the
billboard.

The lawsuit says removal of the billboard message unconstitutionally "conveyed a message that religion is favored,
preferred and promoted by the city."
