A federal judge in Rhode Island ruled that a prayer banner can remain in a public high school for the time being but must be concealed.
The terms were negotiated between Cranston High School West officials and opponents of the banner, and settled at the U.S. District Court in Providence.
The prayer banner has been covered with wood since a judge ordered its removal after Jessica Ahlquist, an atheist student, won a recent lawsuit for its removal.
Now, Cranston officials are deciding whether to appeal the removal order.
If the city appeals, the judge ordered the wood must be painted to match the wall color and stay that way during the appeal. If the city doesn't appeal, the banner must be removed
