We have an update on a controversial Jesus portrait that is hanging in Jackson Middle School in Ohio. The Jackson County School Board says they will not remove the portrait.
Lawyers for the board say the portrait can stay because it belongs to a private club and is not owned by a government entity. The portrait belongs to the Hi-Y Club and has been hanging in the school since 1947.
The American Civil Liberties Union has sued, saying the picture unconstitutionally promotes religion. The lawsuit will continue to U.S. District Court.
