Mt. Soledad Cross Victory

San Diego Cross Will Stay -- The California State Appeals Court has given a legal victory to supporters of the
San Diego cross.

The 29-foot cross monument sits on public land atop Mount Soledad near the city of San Diego.

The cross has been the subject of controversy, because some say it is an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.

With legal challenges mounting, President Bush has signed legislation that transferred the property to the Federal government.

Voters approved a separate but similar measure. However, a judge ruled against it.

On Thursday, the appelliate court overturned the judge's decision, ruling the transfer of land is constitutional.
