VERNON, N.J. (AP) — A 9/11 memorial that was removed from a New Jersey courtroom after a judge warned it could be used as a weapon has a temporary home.
The seven-foot-tall, 275-pound sculpture will be inside the Sussex County Community College's Center for Performing Arts until Oct. 20.
The tower was removed from the Vernon municipal court in July after a judge warned it could be used as a weapon. The courtroom is also where the town council meets.
Sculptor Everett Paladini tells the New Jersey Herald (http://bit.ly/Ti3kVi ) he would like his work to have a permanent home.
The college is hosting the county's annual 9/11 ceremony on Sunday. It's unclear if the sculpture will be included.
