The Supreme Court issued a decision Dec. 3 siding with California churches that are seeking relief from the state’s heavy-handed COVID-19 restrictions on attendance at houses of worship.
The decision is the second in two weeks slapping down overreaches by Democratic governors in populous states related to combating the CCP virus,which causes COVID-19. It also follows the arrival on the bench of Justice Amy Coney Barrett, a constitutional conservative confirmed by the U.S. Senate before Election Day.
The decision comes after the Supreme Court blocked New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, from enforcing tough pandemic-related restrictions on attendance at houses of worship. That 5–4 unsigned opinion, in Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn v. Cuomo, which came on Nov. 25, also applies to another case, Agudath Israel of America v. Cuomo, as The Epoch Times has previously reported.
