This week, a California District Court approved the settlement of Harvest Rock Church and Harvest International Ministry’s lawsuit against Gov. Gavin Newsom, establishing the first state-wide permanent injunction in the country against COVID restrictions on churches and places of worship, CBN News reported.
The governor must also pay Liberty Counsel, which defended the churches, $1,350,000 to reimburse attorney’s fees and costs. Newsom is the first governor in the United States to be reprimanded so severely on this issue, being ordered to obey a permanent injunction on behalf of houses of worship.
While the state allowed activity at grocery stores, warehouses, big box stores, transportation, and more, Newsom had unconstitutionally shut down religious activities like church gatherings.
