The Supreme Court has turned away another appeal from a judge who wanted to display a poster containing the Ten Commandments in his courtroom.

The court on Monday refused to hear the argument rom Richland County Common Pleas Judge James DeWeese.

The judge hung the poster in his courtroom in Mansfield in 2006 after the U.S. Supreme Court let stand lower-court rulings that another Ten Commandments poster he hung in 2000 violated separation between church and state.

The ACLU of Ohio Foundation sued, and the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the display endorsed religious views and was unconstitutional. The ACLU also sued in the first case.
