Federal Judge Rules Against Challenge Over KY Ban On Mass Gatherings

A ruling by a federal judge is a mixed result for three people who attended services at a Bullitt County church.

The trio filed suit challenging Governor Andy Beshear’s restrictions on travel due to the coronavirus and his ban on mass gatherings.

A U.S. District judge ruled the travel restrictions are unconstitutional, but found that the ban on mass gatherings doesn’t specifically suppress religious expression.

The group that filed suit argued the ban unfairly singled out religious gatherings.
