BREAKING NEWS! FFRF wins lawsuit against praying Texas judge
The Freedom From Religion Foundation has won its court challenge to stop a Texas judge from conducting courtroom prayer.
U.S. District Judge Kenneth M. Hoyt today ruled in favor of plaintiffs FFRF and local attorney “John Roe.” They had sued Montgomery County Judge Wayne Mack over his divisive and unconstitutional practice of opening each court session with chaplain-led prayer. Mack, as a justice of the peace, has jurisdiction over minor misdemeanor offenses and lesser civil matters. Montgomery County is north of Houston, and its county seat is Conroe.
