Ten Commandments Display Struck Down in Ohio; Federal Judge Rules Court Display Violates Const.

A federal judge ruled yesterday (February 2, 2011) that a Ten Commandments display in an Ohio courtroom violates the Constitution, according to the Christian Post website.

The case dates back to 2000, when James DeWeese, a judge of the Richland County Court of Common Pleas, hung two posters -- one of the Bill of Rights and the other of the Ten Commandments -- in his courtroom.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed the lawsuit.

The court ruled that the poster "sets forth overt religious messages and religious endorsements."
