Colorado, New Jersey worshipers win US Supreme Court fight over Covid-19 shutdowns as lower courts ordered to re-examine rules

The US Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a Colorado church and a New Jersey priest and rabbi who challenged state shutdowns of religious services, ordering lower courts to re-examine government Covid-19 restrictions.

Tuesday's ruling threw out lower federal-court rulings upholding state orders that had shut down religious gatherings in the states. Lower courts were ordered to re-examine restrictions on indoor religious services ordered by Colorado Governor Jared Polis and New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy in light of the high court's November 26 ruling that blocked New York from imposing Covid-19 capacity limits on houses of worship.

The latest victory for religious liberties also follows a December 3 decision in which the Supreme Court ruled against California Governor Gavin Newsom's restrictions on religious services.
