Gish v. Newsom (2020)

This amicus brief was filed in the 9th Circuit on June 30th, 2020 in response to stay at home orders limiting church capacities during the Covid-19 pandemic.

FFRF’s brief argued that churches should not have an exemption to the rule limiting worship service attendance to 25 percent capacity or 100 people. It also refuted s the argument that the rule is targeteding religious gatherings as it was applied equally to all types of gathering, religious or secular.
