KNIGHTSTOWN, Ind. (WISH) — The Knightstown Town Council is scheduled to hold a special meeting on Wednesday to talk about its lawsuit with the ACLU.

The town was sued over a cross on its Christmas tree in the city.

The council plans to meet Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. to talk about negotiations with the ACLU.

The lawsuit sparked controversy in Knightstown with some holding crosses and chanting outside the council office.

The issue began when a resident claimed the cross infringed upon his civil liberties.
