    Well... no. I mean, one of the defendants is the Obama administration itself. The other is some kind of historical association that doesn't seem to have anything to do with the families. This is not "a group of families" that did this, and the government doesn't have a right to tell families how they feel.

    I'm making an assumption there. I would think (hope) this association would have had some sort of interaction with the families of those particular service members prior to erecting the monument. I see your pov on the distinction though and agree. It is a very different case in that the parties involved have dissimilar motives I'm sure.
