Parkersburg, Freedom from Religion Foundation seek ruling in prayer lawsuit [View all]

The suit was filed in 2018 by the Freedom from Religion Foundation on behalf of two Parkersburg residents, Daryl Cobranchi and Eric Engle, who are members of the Wisconsin-based nonprofit organization that advocates for separation of church and state.

It challenged City Council’s practice of standing and reciting the Lord’s prayer prior to the start of meetings, saying the action endorses Christianity over other religions and violates the First Amendment.
