The Supreme Court today agreed to hear  Town of Greece v. Galloway , a case out of New York in which the Second Circuit held, in an  opinion  by Judge Guido Calabresi, that the town’s practice of allowing  private citizens to open town board meetings with a  prayer violates the Establishment Clause. The last legislative prayer case at the high court was thirty years ago. My colleague Marc DeGirolami has the details at the Center for Law and Religion Forum .
