On November 6, the Court will hear oral arguments in Town of Greece v. Galloway, in which it will consider whether a town council violates the Establishment Clause when it begins its session with a prayer led by members of the clergy or local citizens, even if it does not discriminate in choosing who will offer the prayers.  (Lyle reported on the case shortly after the Court granted cert.) We have asked guest contributors with a variety of perspectives to share their thoughts on what is at stake in the case, and how the Court might ultimately rule.  Next week we will be publishing guest posts from:

  • Carl Esbeck – University of Missouri School of Law
  • B. Jessie Hill – Case Western Reserve University School of Law
  • Richard Garnett – Notre Dame Law School
  • Daniel Mach – American Civil Liberties Union
  • Eric Rassbach – The Becket Fund
  • Nelson Tebbe and Micah Schwartzman – Brooklyn Law School and University of Virginia School of Law
