Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals vacates ruling upholding graduation prayers, NGU at center of controversy

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling on a lawsuit filed by the American Humanist Association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center challenging the Greenville County School District in Taylors, for including prayers in its graduation ceremonies, as well as hosting some of those ceremonies in a Christian chapel at North Greenville University.

In its ruling, the Fourth Circuit vacated the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina’s ruling upholding graduation prayers.
