The fight over a New York City policy that bars church services in public schools took another legal twist this week. A federal appeals court held the ban did not violate the right to free exercise of religion, reversing a lower court's ruling.
A three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals held that the ban did not compel NYC officials to make decisions that "constitute excessive entanglement with religion," as a lower court had found.
What does this ruling mean for religious groups and for NYC's public schools?
