The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals rules Greece, New York violated a Constitutional ban on favoring one religion by opening board meetings with a Christian prayer for 11 years.  Two residents sued, although the town had started inviting some non-Christians to start the meetings.

This court, ruling that prayer’s fine, but that the town should have made a greater effort to include other faiths.  A town lawyer says they’ll appeal.
