Can KKK `adopt a highway'? Appellate court considers matter

Posted:

ATLANTA (AP) -- A Georgia appeals court heard arguments Thursday about whether the state violated the Ku Klux Klan's constitutional rights by refusing its application to a highway cleanup program.

The north Georgia KKK group applied to join the state's Adopt-A-Highway program in May 2012.

The state Department of Transportation denied the application, but when the ACLU sued on the KKK's behalf, a Fulton County judge ruled in the Klan's favor.

The state then appealed the decision.
