KENTUCKY AG FILES RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST GOVERNOR TO BLOCK RELIGIOUS SCHOOL CLOSINGS

Spell’s filing argued that Louisiana’s restrictions on large gatherings violateone of the First Amendment’s most precious guarantees: the right of a church, which by definition is an assembly, to decide whether to assemble or not.

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito denied Spell’s request Friday night without asking for information from Louisiana officials or referring the case to the full court.

Spell also sued local and state officials in May, but lower courts ruled against him.

According to the latest filing, Spell has been charged with several misdemeanors for violating coronavirus restrictions and one felony count for allegedly trying to hit a protester with his vehicle.
