The Maryland Court of Appeals ruled 4-3 against Madalyn Murray (later O'Hair) in her case to force the end of required Bible readings and recitations of the Lord's Prayer in public schools.

She will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court and they will accept it, combining her case with a similar one in Pennsylvania. Known as Abington Township School District v. Schempp, the Supreme Court will rule 8-1 against the mandatory recitation of Bible verses and the Lord's Prayer in public schools.
