CHICAGO - A federal panel of judges in Chicago was to hear arguments about where the Elmbrook School District should hold high school graduation ceremonies.
A group called Americans United for Separation of Church and State filed a lawsuit demanding the Brookfield Central and Brookfield East High Schools move their graduation ceremonies.
They have been held for years at Elmbrook Church.
The group claims it's a clear violation of church and state.
Elmbrook school officials have said in the past that their graduation ceremonies are solely secular.
