Issues: (1) Whether Executive Order 202.68 by Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) violates the free exercise clause as targeting and a religious gerrymander when Cuomo made clear through unambiguous statements that the order was targeted at a religious minority’s practices and traditions; and (2) whether the provisions of that order limiting in-person “house of worship” attendance to 10 or 25 people, while allowing numerous secular businesses to operate without any capacity restrictions, violate the free exercise clause on its face by disfavoring worship.
