DANVILLE, Va. (AP) — The Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors will discuss its options this week after losing a court battle over prayer.
A federal judge issued an injunction on March 27 barring the board from opening meetings with prayers associated with any one religion.
The decision came in a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of Barbara Hudson.
The Danville Register & Bee (http://bit.ly/Y6yYbA ) reports that the board plans to discuss its options on Tuesday during a closed-door meeting with its attorney in the case, state Sen. Bill Stanley.
The ACLU filed a petition Friday asking the judge to order the board to pay Hudson's legal fees in the case, almost $60,000.
Stanley says the board will challenge the petition.
