Tentative Settlement On Ohio Jesus Portrait Suit

The Wintershall Players Relive The Life Of Christ In Five Hours

JACKSON, Ohio (AP) — A tentative settlement has been reached in a federal lawsuit challenging the display of a portrait of Jesus that had been in a southern Ohio school for decades.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/13F2WY5 ) a U.S. district judge ordered the two sides to submit the settlement within 90 days. No details were disclosed.

American Civil Liberties Union spokesman Nick Worner says the group is pleased there is a tentative agreement. He says its primary concern is that the portrait come down and stay down.

An attorney for Jackson City Schools declined to comment.

The school had taken the portrait down in April, but court filings say it returned on the school lawn for a prayer meeting and was visible to those entering an art-storage area.
