Last week, the 4th District Court of Appeals upheld as constitutional the voter-approved City of San Diego ballot measure to transfer land under the Mt. Soledad Cross to the federal government. Also last week, a federal judge refused to dismiss the city from a lawsuit challenging the transfer of the cross to the federal government.

What exactly does the decision of the California 4th District Court of Appeals mean to the future of the cross atop Mount Soledad? Basically, the court upheld a voter-approved measure to transfer the land under the cross to the federal government. How important is that ruling and where does the case go from here? Host Gloria Penner talks with Martin Kruming, an attorney and editor of San Diego Lawyer , a magazine published by the San Diego Bar Association, about the ruling.
