Jeremy Vuolo’s church lawsuit details surface
According to an article in the Los Angeles Times. Grace Community Church violated Los Angeles County’s prohibitions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The county guidelines stated that the church shouldn’t have held indoor services. The county sued the church for allegedly holding indoor services in summer 2020.
Although some may argue that this was an infringement of religious freedom, the pandemic was so severe that the county was able to sue. The U.S. Supreme Court made changes in September 2020 so that the county could no longer sue the church. These rulings were made to prevent public health guidelines from affecting houses of worship.
L.A. County spent more than $900,000. This case also included a countersuit from the church. The L.A. County Board of Supervisors approved the settlement last week. To cover their legal expenses, the church will be paid $400,000 California also owes the Church $400,000 in legal fees.
