LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A federal judge has ruled that Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear’s restriction on travel amid the coronavirus pandemic is unconstitutional. But U.S. District Judge William O. Bertelsman sided with the governor on a ban of mass gatherings in a ruling Monday.
A group of plaintiffs who attended a church service in Louisville had filed suit challenging the travel and mass gatherings bans.
They attended an Easter church service and received orders from the state to quarantine for 14 days.
