The Ten Commandments will remain on display in the Grayson County courthouse.
The U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday denied a request by the American Civil Liberties Union to rehear the case.
The U.S. Sixth Circuit ruled in January that the Grayson County display of the Ten Commandments did not violate the U.S. Constitution because it was part of a display of historical documents, including the Magna Carta, the Mayflower Compact and the Bill of Rights.
Just days after the Sixth Circuit decision, the Ten Commandments and other historical documents were placed back on the walls of the Grayson County courthouse in Leitchfield.
A federal judge in Louisville had earlier ruled that county officials had to remove the Ten Commandments from the display, saying it violated a federal rule that says the government cannot endorse or promote religion.
