Lund v. Rowan County, North Carolina, 15-1591

In an action challenging the opening of Board of Commissioners' public meetings with an invocation delivered by a member of the Board, alleging such practice violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, the District Court's judgment in favor of plaintiffs is reversed where, under the Supreme Court's most recent decision explaining legislative prayer, Town of Greece v. Galloway, 134 S. Ct. 1811 (2014), the Board's legislative prayer practice is constitutional.
