HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (Times Free Press) -- A federal appeals court will hear arguments on April 24 on whether the Hamilton County commissioners must stop allowing invocations at public meetings.
Judges with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the U.S. 6th Circuit also ruled on two motions filed by outside parties since the case went on appeal after local U.S. District Judge Harry S. "Sandy" Mattice declined to halt the prayers temporarily while the case worked its way through the courts.
Local attorney Robin Flores represents the plaintiffs, Brandon Jones and Tommy Coleman, who filed a lawsuit in June 2012.
Flores said Friday that his clients have a sound argument. If the appeals court halts the prayers temporarily, then it's likely they will be halted permanently, he said.
