Judge blocks Cooper’s restrictions on religious services
A federal judge has temporarily blocked Gov. Roy Cooper’s restrictions on religious services put in place in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The judge’s order came Saturday, two days after two Baptist churches had sued the governor claiming the order violated their First Amendment religious freedoms, The News & Observer reported. A hearing is scheduled for May 29.
The governor’s office said it wouldn’t appeal, so churches will be able to choose whether to hold indoor services of more than 10 people. But Cooper’s office urged religious leaders to voluntarily comply with restrictions to protect public health.
