Ohio school says Jesus portrait has been taken down

concerns about the potential costs of a federal lawsuit against its display Jesus portrait has been taken down.
"The case is still open; there was no actual ruling (by the court)," spokesman Nick Worner said. But he added there would be no reason to pursue a
court order if the portrait isn't put back up.
Hiram Sasser, an attorney with the Liberty Institute that helped defend the school, said Wednesday that the Hi-Y Club could file its own lawsuit for
the right to display the portrait, but he didn't know its plans. Messages were left for the club's adviser and legal representative. Howard said the
portrait was in the club's possession.
