Related Case: Lund v. Rowan County

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Brett Harvey regarding Friday’s decision by the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit against a North Carolina county’s prayer policy in Lund v. Rowan County:

“All Americans, including public servants, should have the freedom to pray without being censored, just as the Supreme Court found only three years ago. The First Amendment affirms the liberty of Americans to pray according to their consciences before public meetings. For that reason, a 4th Circuit panel last year rightly upheld Rowan County’s prayer policy, which is clearly constitutional. The county will consult with its legal counsel to consider asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review this case.”
 
Harvey is co-counsel in defense of the county along with David Gibbs of The National Center for Life and Liberty, Ken Klukowski of First Liberty Institute, and other allies.
