Decision Coming On Display Of Commandments

LANCASTER, Ky. (AP) - Judge-Executive John Wilson says Garrard County Fiscal Court is expected to decide next week what it plans to do in its quest to continue displaying the Ten Commandments at the county courthouse.

U.S. District Judge Karl Forester issued an opinion September fifth that "a reasonable person would conclude that the county's display has the effect of endorsing religion." Forester also dismissed Garrard County's motion for a summary judgment. He stopped short of ruling whether the display is unconstitutional.

Wilson declined to say what options were discussed, citing the fact that the discussion was held during executive session. Attending the meeting was Francis Manion, an attorney who is representing Garrard County in the federal case.
