Religious displays in the bursar's office at Hunter College do not constitute a government endorsement of religion, a federal judge ruled.

U.S. District Judge Richard Holwell dismissed a challenge brought by Herman Menes, a college accountant who said the collection of angel figurines, religious posters and holiday decorations on display at the city college violated his First Amendment rights.

Menes claimed the college transferred him from the bursar's department to the accounting department in retaliation for his complaints about the religious displays.

Holwell granted the college's motion for summary judgment, concluding that Menes "failed to offer evidence that any action or policy of any defendant, whether considered individually or in the aggregate, was undertaken with a non-secular purpose."

Menes also failed to establish a causal connection between his opposition to the office displays and his transfer, the judge ruled.
