(Duchesne-AP) -- The religious group Summum is suing the city of Duchesne.

That's because the city won't grant them land to display its Seven Aphorisms.

The city donated a plot of land in a park to the Lions Club for their monument of the Ten Commandments. But the mayor says the city donated the land to the Lions Club's because of their service to the city.

The mayor told Summum he'd do the same for that organization if they rendered that amount of service.

Summum's lawsuit alleges the property transfer was a 'sham transfer' and was only a way for the city to protect its Ten Commandments monument.
