GREENWOOD, Ind. (WISH) - A federal judge will rule by May 28 whether to allow prayerduring graduation ceremonies at Greenwood High School.
The judge heard arguments from both sides Friday morning.
The ACLU of Indiana filed suit in federal court on behalf of18-year-old Erick Workman who is the senior class'valedictorian.
Workman believes prayer violates church and state and that thejudge should issue an injunction.
"The Supreme Court has held specifically it is unconstitutionalto have prayer at graduation," said Ken Falk with the ACLU.
However, the school argued students voted to allow prayer attheir graduation. It believes this is a freedom of speech issue nota First Amendment issue.
Despite the lawsuit, Workman still expects to speak at thegraduation ceremony.
