July 2021 – In a 5-4 decision on April 9, the U.S. Supreme Court handed California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) yet another defeat in his runaway campaign to use COVID-19 as a billy club to bash citizens into total submission. In Ritesh Tandon, et. al. v. Gavin Newsom, et. al., the high court granted an emergency injunction finding that Newsom’s restrictions on home Bible study and worship violate the First Amendment.
The Court wrote: “This is the fifth time the Court has summarily rejected the 9th Circuit’s analysis of California’s COVID-19 restrictions on religious exercise.”
“Gov. Gavin Newsom has lost every time before the Supreme Court regarding these worship bans,” observed Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver. “You would think he would wake up by now. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has been wrong every time regarding the worship restrictions.”
