The Supreme Court today rejected the petition of Kentucky's McCreary and Pulaski Counties, ending the lengthy quest to get courthouse Ten Commandment displays reinstated. Lower courts had ruled that recent changes by county officials failed to overcome the high court's 2005 declaration that in that setting, the display is unconstitutional.

Declining to revisit the case, the Supreme Court effectively ends the dispute, which has been ongoing since 1999 when the displays were first erected.
