A New Jersey high school football coach is taking a team prayer case to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Coach Marcus Borden of East Brunswick High School has asked the court to review a ruling from the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals.
Last April, the appeals court ruled that Borden could not kneel and bow his head in prayer with his team members.
That decision reversed a ruling that previously allowed the coach to silently lead his team in prayer. However, the judges couldn't agree on precisely what a coach should do when his team prays. One judge said Borden's head-bowing was an "inappropriate endorsement of religion".
Borden's lawyer says they will ask the high court to clarify the murky law about student-led prayer.
