BLOOMFIELD, N.M. (AP) - A Ten Commandments monument in a northwestern New Mexico city at the center of a U.S. Supreme Court fight is coming down.

According to the Daily Times of Farmington, the Four Corners Historical Monument Project announced this week the monument located outside of City Hall in Bloomfield will be moved.

The group's founder, Kevin Mauzy, says it will be placed at another prominent location within the city limits.

The move comes after the U.S. Supreme Court last week sided with a lower court that ordered Bloomfield to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the lawn outside City Hall.

Civil liberties advocates behind the case called the decision involving Bloomfield a victory for the separation of church and state.
