New York Bid to Halt Worship on School Grounds Rejected by Court

The latest bid by New York City to halt the use of public schools for worship was rejected by a federal appeals court that said the harm suffered by the city was outweighed by the fact that the practice has been in effect for almost a decade.

The U.S. Court of Appeals in Manhattan yesterday denied the city’s bid for a preliminary injunction which would have allowed enforcement of New York’s ban of worship inside public school facilities.
