NBC News reports that the Superior Court issued orders on two cases in which two churches had sued over coronavirus restrictions in the state. The Superior Court has ruled that California cannot currently ban indoor worship in areas where virus cases are increasing, but it can limit indoor services to 25% of a building’s capacity. The judges also refused to stop the state from banning singing during worship.
The three left wing judges on the court disagreed.
The lawsuit follows a ruling in a New York City case late last year in which judges split 5-4 to prevent the state from imposing certain limits on church and synagogue attendance.
Shortly afterward, the judges asked a federal court to reconsider a similar lawsuit over California’s restrictions in light of the ruling.
