9th Circuit Hears Oral Arguments in Harvest Rock Church Appeal

Yesterday, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments (video of arguments) in Harvest Rock Church v. Newsom. In the case, a California federal district court, on remand from the U.S. Supreme Court, upheld California's COVID restrictions on houses of worship. (See prior posting.) Plaintiffs then asked the 9th Circuit for an emergency injunction pending appeal. (Links to briefs and supplemental briefs filed in the 9th Circuit.) That motion was the subject of yesterday's arguments.
