Appeal Dropped in Conn. Graduation-Church Case

ENFIELD, Conn.—Enfield school officials have narrowly voted not to appeal a federal judge’s ruling against plans to hold high school graduations in a megachurch.

The Enfield School Board voted 5-4 Thursday night, meaning graduation will be held on school grounds this year.

A federal judge in Bridgeport issued a preliminary injunction Monday, barring graduation in First Cathedral on June 23 and June 24 until she holds a full hearing on the legal issues. She said an observer would perceive the message that Enfield endorsed the church’s religious views.

David J. McGuire of the American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut, which represented two students suing to stop the ceremonies in the church, says the board’s vote was “the right thing for the students and for the community.”
