Federal judge bars opening prayers.

A federal judge has barred a Florida county commission from opening its meetings with prayers. A Florida Today report says U.S. District Judge John Antoon ruled that opening Brevard County commission meetings with religious invocations violated both the U.S. Constitution and the Florida Constitution. The Central Florida Freethought Community, the Humanist Community of the Space Coast and the Space Coast Freethought Association sued the county in federal court in 2015. This followed a decision by commissioners not to include atheists and agnostics in a rotation of clergy members delivering the opening invocations.
