(RNS) — Last week the U.S. Supreme Court stopped New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo from imposing some limits on in-person worship that he had already stopped imposing.

A dissenting Chief Justice John Roberts pointed out that under the circumstances there was “simply no need” to grant the temporary injunction requested by the Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and the Orthodox Jewish organization Agudath Israel. In two cases over the summer, Roberts had sided with the court’s liberal wing to deny similar requests from religious organizations for injunctive relief.
