Issue: Whether the Supreme Court should grant emergency relief from California’s restrictions on “gatherings” as a violation of the free exercise clause to the extent that they prohibit (or severely restrict) at-home religious gatherings – notwithstanding the Supreme Court’s clear instructions that California “must place religious activities on par with the most favored class of comparable secular activities" in South Bay United Pentecostal Church v. Newsom.
