City councilman looks likely to lose federal court challenge to city's limits on prayers at council meetings

The Fredericksburg paper reports here that Judge Spencer of the E.D. Va. doesn't think much of the arguments raised by a Fredericksburg city council member who wants to pray any way he likes when it is his turn to open city council meetings.

I don't guess the plaintiff/councilman will get to vote when the council decides whether to instruct its lawyers to go after him for attorneys' fees under 42 U.S.C. 1988.
