The U.S. Supreme Court announced Friday that it would take up a church-state case that could reshape its interpretation of the establishment clause of the First Amendment.

The justices granted certiorari in two related cases: Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission v. American Humanist Association and The American Legion v. American Humanist Association, both involving a war memorial in the shape of the cross on public land in Maryland and whether it violates the establishment clause, which bars laws “respecting an establishment of religion.”
