WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court has passed up a chance to take another look at a 6-year-old ruling that struck down the display of the Ten Commandments in two Kentucky courthouses.

McCreary and Pulaski counties had appealed recent lower-court rulings barring them from posting the commandments, despite changes to the displays to include multiple religious and government documents.

The counties were hoping that those differences, as well as critical changes in the composition of the high court, would lead the justices to take up their appeal.

But the court, without comment, declined to do so Tuesday.
