US Supreme Court won’t hear Nevada church’s COVID-19 case
Attorneys general from 19 other states had recently joined in support of the church east of Reno
RENO, Nev. (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court has refused a rural Nevada church’s request to weigh in on a legal battle over the government’s authority to limit the size of religious gatherings.
The high court on Monday denied Calvary Chapel Dayton Valley’s petition seeking to review the case on its merits.
Attorneys general from 19 other states had recently joined in support of the church east of Reno.
They were urging the Supreme Court to rule on the Nevada case to help bring uniformity to various standards courts across the country have used to balance the interests of public safety and freedom of religion.
