CHINO HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Two months after members of a Southern California school district board were ordered to halt prayers and religious proselytizing at meetings, the same federal judge has ordered them to pay the legal fees of the lawsuit’s winning side.

The San Bernardino Sun reported Sunday (https://bit.ly/1PQrHkR ) that U.S. District Judge Jesus Bernal wants four Chino Valley Unified board members to pay more than $202,000 to the Freedom From Religion Foundation. The group sued the district in 2014.

The board is appealing Bernal’s Feb. 18 order to end its long-standing tradition of reciting prayers and Bible readings during meetings.
