(WPDE-TV) — The Chesterfield County school board met Thursday afternoon to talk about a lawsuit filed against them by the American Civil Liberties Union.

The school board chairman opened the meeting with a prayer, and that’s what the lawsuit involves, religion.

Last month, the ACLU sued the district on behalf of a parent who was upset over a Christian rally held at New Heights Middle School in September.

The ACLU says the rally violates the constitution.
