Churches in the Czech Republic are celebrating a big victory this week. The country's highest court upheld a government plan to pay billions of dollars to religious groups.
The money is compensation for property the former Communist regime seized from the groups.
The churches have been fighting this battle since the 1989 fall of Communism.
Under the plan, 16 religious groups, including Catholics, Protestants and Jews, will get $3 billion over the next 30 years.
They will also get 56 percent of their property now held by the state.
