Supreme Court Rejects 10 Commandments Case

WASHINGTON(RNS) The Supreme Court on Tuesday (Feb. 22) chose not to reexamine its decision to strike down displays of the Ten Commandments in two Kentucky courthouses.

The high court ruled in 2005 that the Ten Commandments displays outside two county courthouses violated the Constitution’s Fist Amendment. After that ruling, the counties attempted to revise and repurpose the displays as secular.

“This case presented the opportunity for the Supreme Court to bring sanity back to the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment,” said Liberty Counsel, a conservative Christian law firm representing the Kentucky counties.

The Supreme Court offered no comment as to why the case was not heard.
