(Duchesne-AP) -- A federal judge today will hear arguments over whether the religious group Summum can display its Seven Aphorisms in Roy Park.

The group is seeking a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction for authorization to erect its monument in the park.

It would sit next to a Ten Commandments monument given to the city by a family in 1979.

The judge could grant the order or take the matter under advisement.

Summum says city officials have rejected the group's proposals to put the monument up on public land next to the other monument. But city officials say the Ten Commandments monument is no longer on city property because it donated the plot of land to the Lion's Club.
