The borough had agreed it would replace the "Lord's Prayer" with a moment of silence, but it was not silent. The borough attorney says the councilman's prayer is OK because he was acting as a private citizen and not as a member of the governing body.
The ACLU's lawsuit against the borough is scheduled to go before a judge at the Ocean County Superior Court in Toms River on Dec. 3.
