Supreme Court Watch – First Amendment / Religious Litigation

By /

The US Supreme Court has accepted review of Town of Greece v. Galloway, an Establishment Clause case that will examine the constitutionality of public prayer conducted before a civil Town Meeting. The town of Greece ceased its practice of commencing its town meetings with prayer provided by (mostly) Christian clerics after the lawsuit was first decided in the Second Circuit. If the Court chooses to address the issue broadly (reminiscent of Hosanna Tabor v. EEOC last year), this could be another major pronouncement of the Roberts court on the place of religion in our Constitution and our every day public lives.
