Federal Court Vacates Injunction Barring Display

In a 2-1 decision Thursday, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals vacated an injunction barring Grayson County from using the commandments as part of a display that included the Mayflower Compact, the Declaration of Independence and other historical documents. U.S. District Judge Joseph McKinley issued an injunction in 2008 barring the display, saying it had religious intent. Two citizens and the American Civil Liberties Union sued after the county put up the display. Now it remains to be seen if the County will once again display the historical documents. At this point they have made no indication of their intent.
