In the latest entry to the Supreme Court’s coronavirus docket, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn filed an emergency request Thursday asking the justices to grant it relief from attendance limits at church services ordered by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D). Amy Howe explains the dispute.

The justices meet Friday for their private weekly conference to decide whether to take up any new cases. Among the noteworthy petitions slated to be discussed are a case involving the Sixth Amendment right to effective assistance of counsel and a case asking whether the “community caretaking” exception to the Fourth Amendment’s warrant requirement extends to the home.
