9th Circuit Hears Oral Arguments In School Board Invocation Case

Yesterday the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments (video of full oral arguments) in Freedom From Religion foundation v. Chino Unified School District. In the case, a California federal district court held that invocations at school board meetings are governed by case law relating to school prayer, not by the line of cases on legislative prayer.  Courthouse News Service reports on the oral arguments.
