Supreme Court against Restrictions on Churches

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo

“The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday night blocked New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo from reimposing strict attendance caps at worship services in areas hit hard by the novel coronavirus. The order was also the first in which Justice Amy Coney Barrett played a decisive role. Barrett was President Trump’s third Supreme Court nominee. In the hardest-hit areas, which were designated red zones, the state limited attendance in houses of worship to 25% of their capacity or 10 people, whichever is fewer. The majority said his limits violated the First Amendment’s protection of the free exercise of religion.”
