The Supreme Court’s first analysis of graduation prayer came in Lee v. Weisman, 505 U.S. 577 (1992). In Lee, the court held that school officials violated the Establishment Clause by inviting clergy to give prayers at a graduation commencement. It is important to note, however, that the Lee court clearly limited its decision to the particular fact that the school organized the prayer at the graduation ceremony. Id. at 629 (Souter, J., concurring).
