Question: Judge James DeWeese hung a poster in his court room showing

Judge James DeWeese hung a poster in his court-room showing the Ten Commandments. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a suit, alleging that the poster violated the establishment clause. De Weese responded that his purpose was not to promote religion but to express his view about “warning” legal philosophies—moral relativism and moral absolutism. “our legal system is based on moral absolutes from divine law handed down by god through the ten commandments.” Does this poster violate the establishment clause? Why or why not?
