PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pennsylvania student’s mother and atheists’ group who sued a school district over a Ten Commandments display are asking a federal appeals court to send the 2012 lawsuit back for trial.

A judge in July had ruled in favor of the New Kensington-Arnold School District. He said that Marie Schaub’s daughter wasn’t in high school when she sued, so both had minimal contact with the monument.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports (https://bit.ly/20fuxHc ) that the district’s lawyer told the Pittsburgh court Thursday that Schaub would have standing if she filed the same lawsuit now.

An attorney for Schaub and the Freedom From Religion Foundation says Schaub sued because she knew her daughter would have passed the monument daily at Valley Junior-Senior High School.

The judges took the case under advisement.
