Summary:

The Supreme Court delivered a split verdict on displays of the Ten Commandments yesterday. The court ruled a decades-old monument could remain on the grounds of the Texas State Capitol but that framed wall displays in two Kentucky courthouses violated the First Amendment because officials put them there for religious reasons. Both votes were 5-4 rulings involving shifting majorities, producing a total of 10 opinions.
