U.S. Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Religious Liberty in Colorado and New Jersey Cases

Supreme Court
This week, the U.S. Supreme Court ordered lower federal courts in Colorado and New Jersey to re-review state-mandated capacity limits for church attendance in light of its recent ruling in a case out of Brooklyn, New York. In that case, Diocese of Brooklyn v. Cuomo, the court ruled that 10 and 25-person capacity limits on Church attendance infringed upon religious exercise when such limits were not also imposed on businesses and other "essential" services. These rulings are a victory for religious liberty and a reminder that "even in a pandemic, the Constitution cannot be put away and forgotten."
