Fourth Circuit rules against prayers at town council meetings in S.C.

In Wynne v. Town of Great Falls, the Fourth Circuit in an opinion by Judge Motz, joined by Judge King and Senior Judge Hansen (sitting by designation), affirmed the judgment entered by the district court, which concluded that the "practice of members of Town Council invoking name(s) specifically associated with the Christian faith at Town Council meetings violate[d] the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution."
