CA: Newsom ordered to pay $1.35 million to church for violating its First Amendment rights

“Gavin Newsom has been ordered to pay $1.35 million to a California church after its congregation was barred from worshipping by the state’s Covid rules. The Governor can no longer place lockdown rules on houses of worship as part of the settlement, according to local paper Pasadena Now. … The settlement with Newsom’s administration covers the legal fees accrued by the Harvest Rock Church.” [editor’s note: Presumably the taxpayers will be forced to pick up Newsom’s tab. Pity he’s not personally liable for his actions – TLK] (05/26/21)
