Lexington, Ky.: A federal appeals court is standing by a ruling allowing a central Kentucky courthouse to keep a display of the Ten Commandments, the U.S. 6th. Circuit Court decided Monday it will not consider arguments in the case against the display at the Mercer County courthouse in Harrodsburg, about 30 miles southeast of Lexington, a three judge panel ruled the display was constitutional because its purpose was historical, not religious.

Judge Guy Cole wrote a dissent against Monday's ruling, arguing Mercer County's display was similar to those in Pulaski County and McCreary County, and that the U.S. Supreme Court determined were unconstitutional last year.
