Supreme Court Orders Mansfield Poster Stay Down
The U.S. Supreme Court has turned away another appeal from a Mansfield judge who wanted to display a poster listing the Ten Commandments.
The High Court today refused to hear the argument from Richland County Common Pleas Judge James DeWeese. The judge hung the poster in his courtroom in 2006 after the U.S. Supreme Court said another poster he hung in 2000 violated the separation between church and state.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio Foundation sued and the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the display endorsed religious views and was unconstitutional.
The ACLU also sued in the case of the first poster.
