The Supreme Court has declined to get involved in a new dispute over a Ten Commandments display on public property.

The justices on Monday left in place a lower court decision that a Ten Commandments marker in Haskell County, Okla., must go.

The 8-foot-tall stone monument has been on the county courthouse lawn in Stigler, Okla., since 2004. A federal appeals court ruled last year that it amounts to an unconstitutional endorsement of religion by the county commission.

In 2005, the high court said in two cases that determining whether the Ten Commandments could be displayed on government property was a case-by-case affair.
