A Legal Winning Streak for Religion
Play • 25 min

In a ruling a few days ago, the Supreme Court lifted coronavirus restrictions imposed by California on religious services held in private homes. The decision gave religious Americans another win against government rules that they say infringe on their freedom to worship.

Guest: Adam Liptak, who covers the Supreme Court for The Times.
