Kansas Supreme Court says executive order banning religious service of more than 10 people stands

TOPEKA, Kan. —

The Kansas Supreme Court said late Saturday night that Gov. (D) Laura Kelly’s executive order banning religious services of more than 10 attendees during the coronavirus pandemic will remain in effect.

Gov. Laura Kelly filed a lawsuit after a Republican legislative panel overturned her order.

The court held unprecedented electronic oral arguments Saturday morning, and after listening to arguments, it said the Legislative Coordinating Council lacked the authority to overturn the governor’s executive order.
