State DOJ says no to atheist group's request over Holmen land sale

Email

The state Justice Department says it will not make the Village of Holmen nullify a recent sale of public land with a religious display on it.

Madison's Freedom from Religion Foundation was hoping to buy the property where the Holmen Lions Club has had a lighted star and cross display for years.

But the village recently sold the site to the Lions for $600, half of what the foundation offered.

The foundation said the sale seemed prearranged.
