Review Denied In Challenge To Nevada's Limit on Worship Services

The U.S. Supreme Court today denied a petition for certiorari before judgment in Calvary Chapel Dayton Valley v. Sisolak, (Docket No. 20-639, cert. denied 1/25/2021). (Order List.) At issue is the constitutionality of Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak's COVID-19 Order limiting indoor worship services to no more than 50 people with social distancing. The SCOTUSblog case page has links to all the pleadings in the case. The Supreme Court previously refused to enjoin enforcement of the Order pending appeal. (See prior posting.)
