The ongoing battle over prayers at town of Greece board meetings heads to court this week.

Arguments are scheduled Thursday before U.S. District Judge Charles Siragusa in the federal case filed last year. Both sides are seeking summary judgment.

The lawsuit was filed by Americans United for Separation of Church and State on behalf of two Greece residents concerned by Town Board meetings being opened with explicitly Christian prayers, offered by exclusively Christian clergy.
