Resident challenged sectarian prayers at the beginning of Point Pleasant Beach Borough Council meetings.

New Jersey Superior Court, Ocean County/Direct

Frank L. Corrado/Barry, Corrado, Grassi & Gibson, P.C.

On November 8, 2010, the ACLU-NJ filed its second lawsuit against the borough of Point Pleasant Beach after it passed a policy allowing council members to offer sectarian prayers at the start of council meetings because it violates the New Jersey Constitution. The policy was passed after the ACLU-NJ sued the borough over its previous practice of reciting the Lord's Prayer at each of its council meetings.
