Louisiana governor who said ‘I can’t wait to be sued’ over Ten Commandments law gets his wish

As promised, the ACLU filed a lawsuit on behalf of Louisiana families with children in public schools to challenge what it called a “blatantly unconstitutional” state law that requires the Ten Commandments to be displayed in every classroom.

Louisiana became the first state to require that the Ten Commandments be displayed in every public school classroom, though a number of other states have attempted similar legislation in recent years.

Republican Gov. Jeff Landry signed H.B. 71 into law Wednesday, which requires that by Jan. 1, 2025, every public school classroom must display the Ten Commandments “on a poster or framed document that is at least eleven inches by fourteen inches,” in “a large, easily readable font.”
