The resolution was appealed by
!the state attorney general, Arthur
J. Stiles, to the Superior Court
which called the resolution uncon-
stitutional. The Hawthorne board
appealed to the State Supreme
Court. The State High Court up-
held the Superior Court ruling as
"patently sound," in a 7-0 decision.
Stiles ruled immediately that the
state law allowing such prayers
was unconstitutional.
