4th Circuit Hears Oral Arguments In County Board Invocation Policy

Tuesday's arguments (audio of full arguments) in Hudson v. Pittsylvania County, Virginia are now available on the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals' website.  In the case, a Virginia federal district court held that the prayer policy of Pittsylvania County differed from the policy upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in the Town of Greece case. (See prior posting.)  Much of Tuesday's 4th Circuit arguments focused on the timeliness of the appeal and liability for legal fees. Go Dan River reports on the oral arguments.
