ECHR Ruling: Displaying crucifixes in Italian schools violates human rights

The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that Italian schools have violated the rights of their students and their parents by displaying crucifixes on classroom walls. The court ordered Italy to pay €5,000 ($7,400) in "moral damages" to a mother who had complained about the presence of the crucifix in her children's classrooms.

Thanks to Catholic Culture where there are more details.
