Abstract:
Fear of frivolous lawsuits arising from simple mistakes while performing volunteer work keeps some people and organizations from offering their time.

Abstract:
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on June 24, 1992, in the case of Lee v. Weisman, that asking a member of the clergy to say a prayer at a public school graduation is in violation of the U.S. Constitution's Establishment Clause. Johansen discusses school prayer law prior to the Lee decision; discusses the decision; and examines implications the ruling has for school law in North Carolina, such as prayers at graduation, at extracurricular activities, and at school board, PTA, and faculty meetings.

Abstract:
The Clearinghouse section of the School Law Bulletin summarizes state and federal opinions that affect North Carolina schools. Each summary includes a citation to the relevant judicial opinion so that interested readers can read the opinion's actual text. Neither the Clearinghouse author nor the School of Government takes a position as to the truth of the facts as presented in the opinions or the merits of the legal conclusions reached by any court. For example, a Graham County Board of Education policy mandating random, suspicionless drug and alcohol testing of all its employees violated the State Constitution's guarantee against unreasonable searches.
